In this waltz through the archive of September pictures we’ve now arrived at 2009, a mere 14 years ago. In the course of this archival stroll we’ve advanced from a 5MP digicam to a 6MP DSLR (Konica Minolta 7D) and now to the 12MP Nikon D300. At the time, each one felt an important step, now I find it hard to pay attention to each new year’s technical refinements.
From September 2008. I just finished reading Teju Cole’s Blind Spot a week or so ago. This feels like the kind of picture that might have been found in that book, though it lacks his mordant, poetic observations.
