Contact: Elk spotted in International Airspace, unknown

I  made  my  exposure  (I  did  not  SHOOT  it,  as  I  was  trained  as  a  school  portrait  photographer).    I  made  the  exposure  near  the  border  of  Sharon  and  South  Royalton,  Windsor  County,  Vermont.    In  the  exposure  I  made  a  self  portrait  with  the  largest  single  largest  continuous  shaft  of  polished  granite  in  the  world,  which  is  the  Joseph  Smith  Birthplace  Memorial.    The  shaft  is  33.5  feet  tall,  one  foot  for  every  year  of  the  Prophet  Joseph  Smith's  life.    There  is  a  crack  in  it  where  it  was  struck  by  lightning.    This  is  a  major  pilgrimage  site  for  those  belonging  to  the  Church  of  Jesus  Christ  of  Latter-day  Saints,  of  which  I  belong.

I  handed  the  phototag  camera  on  a  whim  to  a  stranger  on  my  voyage  to  Minnesota  to  visit  my  in-laws.    She  seemed  really  cool,  and  we  talked  a  lot  about  life,  our  plans,  and  our  interests.    She  was  totally  stoked  to  get  this  camera  from  me.    She  makes  leather  accessories  in  Los  Angeles  and  plays  the  guitar.

I  think  phototag  is  a  great  idea.    I  hope  that  the  Elk  comes  back  soon.    Elk  are  good  eating.    Bon  Appetit!

A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there--even if you put them all end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity. - Robert Doisneau
