While this picture is not particularly special, or well staged, for me it tells a story, a story of connection in the fiber world.
I took this picture with my phone on Saturday night to let someone, whom I have never met in person, see the cloth I had just taken off my loom. She is a friend, and purveyor of fine yarns, and despite being hours away I was able to instantly respond to her with a photo within minutes.
It’s not the best picture but it captured a moment that was important to me and one that had it not been for my iPhone I wouldn’t have been able to make a connection with another person across the province and the world.
Photographs have power beyond their perceived quality, they can capture a moment, and now that everyone has cameras in their pockets with instant connection to flickr, facebook and twitter there are more of these little moments that everyone can capture in the future. I am not a picture snob, the more the better!
