Heck, I even find "pretty" reflectors to be crude, ungainly and, dare I say, ugly.



Imagine my aesthetic reaction to less comely boxes-with-poles-stuck-on-them reflectors.

And yes, I did learn something invaluable from Father Joe - no matter how hard up you are, there's no reason to settle for a reflector. Refractors are within reach of us all.
