Story Of The Shutterbug



She has become a moment-antiquarian; because some moments wriggled her dreaded eyes, held her breath, and vanished before she could reach the apotheosis of astonishment.

Now she fills her memorabilia with portraits of fugitive time.

Sometimes every second deserves a second chance!
