  • The funny thing is that this isn't the type of picture I'd keep if really was thinking about it. It's basically a mistake. Poorly shot, not really intentional, and definitely unclear. But, if everything in it is gone now, as melted and gone as that winter's snow, then, really, this picture is perfect. Because it's the only thing left of a moment. And the funny thing is that a moment is often not something one should forget.
