Buddha Quote

Snapshot
It struck me that in a way, there is absolutely no such thing as
a "badly" taken photograph. All photographs are snapshots of
physical "reality" at certain points of time. It doesn't matter
if the angle is off, or the lighting is bad because the photo is
simply a picture of something as it is, recorded on film with the
conditions given. When someone snaps "an ugly picture" of a dirty
toilet, is it considered a "poorly-taken" picture of "low-taste"?
The picture of the toilet, in whatever condition when snapped is
the toilet at that time. It is neutral and "truthful"-not a scene
tasteful or tasteless. Likewise, it is not "poorly-taken"-because
reality is all around. How can one shot of reality be "inferior"
to another. This means that we are mostly much too attached to
beautiful things-we want to snap nice pictures of ourselves
dressed and posed nicely against a nice scenery. We want to
believe that that is real and lasting. But alas-it is but a split
moment in the time of our lives. It is hardly natural-it was
conjured up with effort. See the ego involved? The toilet photo
is as true as your best photo-not good or bad-just a neutral
record of a conditioned moment in time. Realising this helped me
to appreciate pictures of any kind.
