Everytime I hook my camera up to my computer, I create a folder with that specific date. This photograph was loaded in March of 2010. I forgot this photograph existed. It happens when one does not process their photographs immediately after photographing. It’s funny because when I saw this photograph, I immediately recalled the circumstances behind this picture.
I brought my camera to a family gathering and asked my cousin to pose for a photograph. Unsurprisingly, she said no. Because I’m persistent, I pointed my camera at her anyway. She held up her arm to cover up the camera and then I said “hold that pose! This will be cool.” She acquiesced to my request. It turns out that she just doesn’t want her face in the frame, so I covered it up with her upheld arm. I snapped the photograph.
She had a look. She approved. She never asked for the photograph thereafter. Maybe she forgot it existed too.
