The international man of mystery is ultra-mobile, loves this planet and likes to freeze time.
A photograph is a fascinating thing !
A window upon the world, a visual instant in time frozen for all eternity.
As we drift through our existence it is up to us to decide which windows to open,
and which ones shall be left closed forever.
Our mind is not an objective event recorder nor is it a subjective memory cache to be relied upon.
It erodes.....like sea cliffs being pounded by the waves of time, to eventually vanish forever !
Our conscious mind filters and distorts even the present,
so by adding time to the equation you're royally screwed !
A simple photo is really an amazingly objective witness of time and space.
Most of the Photos on this site were taken with a Casio Exilim credit card size camera.
In 2008 I changed to Canon SD 870 IS, a wide angle ultra compact (bordering on too large).
Toy cameras in other words.
