Candid photo

October 4, 2018

…the picture he took was of me. It was candid – I wasn’t posed – and the instant, the Polaroid, is what he used. When the blank square of film emerged from the camera, he tore it off and slipped it in the corners on the page, and then he closed the album cover before the image could develop.

That picture is something I lost in the fire.
