Plato's Cave

What happens when words and images cohabit the same space?

Grandson: Why did you take a picture of a naked lady, grandpa?

Photog: To challenge my photographic skill, little buddy.

Grandson: How’s that?

Photog: To see if I could make a shot of this girl’s body look like just a pure form,
like it was sculpture, say.

Grandson: Oh, I get it... I think.


Touring couples often find
They don’t share a common mind
Where to stop is oft decided,
In a way that leaves divided.
But, if their humor lasts this trip,
Their’s is a solid partnership.
