Sometimes when you pass a place and all you have is your phone, you snap the picture anyway and hope for the best.
One of the coolest things that a camera can do is lie about the instant it captures.
Take this image, for example. They look like they’re calm and like they’ve been sitting there for a long time, contemplating whatever it is that lives in that tank (it’s a family of river otters, but that’s beside the point).
Only some of that’s true. Right after this, they were clambering to get down. Just before this, they were hooting and laughing at the antics of the otters.
This moment of silence was precious more than a millisecond.
And that’s why it’s beautiful.
This is an iPhone photo from behind the scenes of the big project.
Have a look and then come back and lemme know what you think.
This is not part of the project that’s starting TOMORROW, but it’s an outtake from one of the images.
Join me and a group of my buddies in looking at our summer project: The Steam Effect
