History Sticks To The Inconsequential
Whenever I get a new camera – in this case a new Smartphone – I can’t resist taking a few photographs just to see what it is like in various circumstances. The subject matter of such shots is entirely inconsequential – it is whatever happens to be there in front of me at the time. Last night, Bradford Road in Fixby just happened to be there at the time. When I look back at such “test photographs”, they are always some of the most interesting from a historical perspective because of the randomness of the subject. History sticks to the inconsequential like iron filings on a magnet.
