1 hour photo
There was a phase for a while when you actually just popped it into an envelope and sent it away. It was the latest thing.
Now I wait a second, maybe 2 or 3 seconds, and then there I go, I have my photo. (Having them printed as a photograph is a whole other matter). I sit on the bus and glance across the aisle. A girl sifts idly through photograph after beautiful photograph on Instagram. I take photographs to pass the time. To get through something boring. I look down at my coffee cup and get twitchy.
Recently, a friend said she only had one photograph from her wedding. I started sweating just thinking about it, but although she wished for a few more, she wasn't too bothered.
What if I didn't take out my phone one day to take a picture?
What if I looked for looking's sake?
What will I see?
What will I remember?
Just for old times sake I'll let the photographs develop a little longer that day.
