And on the way home…
…I held your camera like a bible
Hoping so bad that it
Held some kind of truth.
‘Don’t count on the camera that hangs round your neck, cause it will never remember what you choose to forget.’
His quotes are just so clever and emotive. This is one of my favorites because it contradicts the old saying that ‘the camera never lies’ – that may be still true in some respects, but at the end of the day we are selective in which truths we want to capture. Even if it is a bad memory, we have chosen to remember it. I guess I am talking literally about taking pictures and metaphorically in the way that we ‘capture memories’, too.
