Here comes sunset (Sedili, Malaysia)

I took this picture while waiting for nightfall, in anticipation of fireflies. Thank goodness it actually got darker ten minutes later. The fireflies were kind of a disappointment, all I could see was flashing white dots. White dots slightly smaller than the flash from a handphone camera. And dimmer. By the time it was completely dark, the ferry ride was almost over. It should last 45 minutes, I was told. Did it even last 30?

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it. (John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion")

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt. (Susan Sontag, "On Photography")
