It’s a cell phone image. Not necessarily refined to the last pixel. Not overly composed. It’s a camera held up to a moment in thought. Not profound but telling. At that moment the best instrument available to capture what the writer sees and feels. A shiny new thought that, by the time it makes its way into a more formal composition will be lost or at least dulled by a more refined contemplation.
The thing about a cell phone is that it’s always handy. The Nikon is squirreled safely away somewhere but the moment is now and the cell phone is here.
And what do we do when we have an image we like? We show it to our friends and to people who share our interests. Thus – the blog.
