Henry... while looking at the photograph, on your screen, place your hand
over the white papers. These papers don't say "posed" or "unposed". They
just say "distraction." Distraction from the real reason for the
photograph. I don't want to keep looking at the papers. I want to see
everything about "dad" but my eyes keep being distracted. Cover up the
papers and the distraction disappears.


ps... I don't.
