This is the photo that I was talking about in the seminar yesterday that reminded me of Ruth’s landscape picture, it was actually a ferry window not a train… It’s captioned: “Reflections: A young boy casts a striking comparison to an aging man lost in a book on a ferry in Istanbul.”

and it also reminds me of this Susan Sontag quote: “All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”
