"After an hour or two at sea,
My Passport Photo looks like me!"

When I was in my printers office the other day, they have a poster up with the quote

"Voyeur: you capture light, the entrantress, and bend her to your likeness"

I loved it! Don't know who wrote it though - anyone heard it?

I have a photograph.

They're all that's left you.

To capture the essence in a single photograph is absurd. The essence is captured while photographing.

I just made that up.(I hope nobody else said that):)

Leo

changed it a bit
