Say cheese! What? People just love to plaster on an inane grin or a vacuous pout on their faces and snap away. The digital age has made amateur photographers and paparazzo’s out of us all. The age of Instagram, Snapchat et al. has brought the ease of clicking a pic literally into the populace’s lap! A long time ago, posing for a photo was a big deal. It included a gathering of a people or individual, usually being dolled up and striking a dramatic or stoic pose for quite some time. All the while someone else would be tampering with a contraption that was larger than they are, and would proceed to tamper with chemicals that were potentially fatal… The outcome of such a Herculean endeavor was a teensy little grey square showing a blurry sepia colored image (a filter that lies a mere tap away on Instagram nowadays).
Photographs still dictate appearances and a quick snap of a voyeuristic lens. A tap of a finger documents our lives in vivid detail nowadays. Perhaps this exhaustive parade of images is becoming a tad too vivid and descriptive and now takes a snapshot of areas of our lives quicker than some people think at times. The perils of a bad photo or photo bomb phenomena, some moron hijacking a perfectly framed image ready to click until a nose or worse body part is horned into it! Not only this, but the ability to capture snippets of the surrounding planet now has grown into a communication grid of its own standing. Meaning that every now and then, a picture surfaces that hasn’t really been intended to be viewed by the wider population. Or something has been randomly snapped minus a reasonable explanation, or something has been glimpsed whose oddity needs to be captured for posterity and the ages. The flash of the camera has often left a negative taste and dash of bewilderment. So let’s focus on this…

Hope is perhaps the most enduring aspect of humanity and society, it drives and spurs us on through the darkness into the light of discovering our potential… even if that potential is a little “out there!”
“Dream it and you can achieve it!” - despite that achievement amounting to little more than a triumph of perfectly designed cardboard wrapped to mimic a sea creature. A narwhal is roughly a unicorn of the oceans, leaping over the waves with the abandon of the mythical equine creature of the land… and this guy is having the piece of that pie any way he can, dammit!
