It’s been a while since I posted about photominimalism. In this case it goes back to my train pictures “through a dirty window.” I’ve noticed that invariably when I take IPhone photographs, I wind up taking an additional picture, usually of my feet. This takes me to the image of Figure 1. I was reviewing the images in my phone, the dirty window images, when I noticed that the live image was of my red ring-bound notebook, which was sitting in my lap. I am not going to tell you that this was an inadvertent image. It was not, and I, in fact, framed and focused it fairly carefully. I think that what makes it, for me, is the intense orange-red color of the rings and the grain on the black notebook. I suspect also that for many of us it is reminiscent of school days, of the smell of fresh notebooks and the promises that they hold.
