A Temporary Signature

“I … was … here.”

A temporary signature, on a slightly less temporary canvas, by a temporary being, in a slightly less temporary world.

None of this is permanent.

Photography is about capturing moments, as, if or when they happen. Mostly they just happen. Sometimes you know they will and can plan ahead. Sometimes you make those moments yourself.

Yet if you blink, or turn your back, or decide to wait just a little … they’re gone.

Some moments may last longer than others. A tree, a building, a waterfall, a mountain, but with time even continents and constellations move, and change, and eventually disappear. In the end it all depends on what kind of moments you wish to keep, or which kinds of marks you want to make, or how much time you have on your hands.

No, I’m not missing a hand. It’s just that someone has to hold the camera while they make their temporary mark, right?
