You still love the photograph, even when everyone else is so obsessed with video. And maybe, just maybe, you want those photographs to highlight you, as you are, as you might be, or both. And friend, there's nothing wrong with that, at all.


You still want to see a little more melanin, documented, or with a little alien intrigue and excitement attached to it. Fantasy and escapism are as necessary as reality. Fabricate fables. Tell tantalizing truths. Don't forget to rub in that whipped shea real well.


Joy is a spectrum, as is stoicism. The chance to immortalize any mood, any moment, is a wonderous gift, one we've revered since before the camera was invented. Get theatrical, even if only for a little bit, and hopefully catch it in your hand.
