When You Hit Rock Bottom, Please Remember Your Camera.
Already the end of the week and it was only Wednesday. And here we are staring at the holiday hitting us in 24 hours. Please.
I met a friend at a bar, as cliched as that sounds. I hate beer. I hate bars. I like none of these things, but I am lonely and bored. I meet my friend and he is not doing better than I. He needs a project, he needs inspiration. Usually I enjoy being in that role, but today I've got nothing to give.
Happy Hour. A beer arrives. I don't even want this. Oh, I'll try it.
I balance the camera phone on the top of the glass and push the button. That's really all that is left to photography anyhow. Why not ? Who's to say no?
First image looked like an amniocentesis. The second image, with an app that makes circular images, looked like a solar eclipse shot through a telescope. I like them. At least for now...and the rest of Happy Hour.
What more could I ask? The history of the first Drinkograph started today.
