A worthy quote from issue 1 of 4 part limited series comics Gangland from Vertigo Comics on cameras and photos..
I’ve been always fascinated by cameras. Little boxes and inside
each one, a tiny thief, ready to steal at touch of a button. To
pocket a moment of time.
What they steal can never be returned; what they take they keep
Stealing moments in time with my invisible eye…
As if I could replace what’s missing in my heart with a few spare
moments clipped from other people’s lives.
