Unphotographable April 30, 2009

A lover of nature’s great vistas and the quest to capture them in full color, contrast, and glory, I was intrigued by the name of this blog: Unphotographable.

This is what I found there, posted 4-15-09:

This is a picture I did not take of the most optimistic homeless man in America, spare changing at the Fox News-sponsored “Tea Party” in Atlanta on April 15th, rattling his empty cup as hundreds passed-by and grimaced at the sight of him approaching, trying to avoid meeting his smiling face, clenching their car keys and homemade signs about Taxes, about how the government is taking too much of their money, while a man stands in front of them with an empty cup and full smile, saying “there’s no good crowd or bad crowd — we’re all one, baby” while they hustle past as fast as they can, to catch a glimpse of their hero Sean Hannity, to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with hands over their hearts while singing God Bless America.

In the face of cable-news’ constant barrage of images and the otherwise over-stimulating world of artifacts we live in, it is amazingly refreshing to find a few words worth a thousand pictures.
