On this day of days, there’s no point in looking back on the mess that was last year. Find a large bottle of alcohol and create your own Indian smoke tent or find an Irish bar, same thing really. It’s all about imagining, visualising, preparedness. The next year is going to be great. Great craic, Great War, great hunger, great invention, great something or other. It always is.
It’s not an unusual shot, historical record or of any real significance. Yet the combination of a camera phone, a camera phone app and a teaspoon of boredom were enough to make a shot interesting.
I keep meaning to bring a medium format camera with me for those trips as I seem to have an affinity for the square format.
