A Snapshot for The Blissful Adventurer
Yes, Michael, Rita is real. She lives with me and my three dogs and Che, the chinchilla. She’s been with me for ten years or so. I swear she is not an imaginary friend. I haven’t had one of those since I was too little to remember. Here, I’m holding her on my hand and trying to photograph her with no access to the focus ring. As I often do, I set the focus before I picked her up and hoped for the best. She’s normally patient with my camera although I don’t think she’s ever much interested in it. She’s seen it for almost her whole life. I guess she thinks it’s something I wear sometimes, like eyeglasses. I must have hundreds of Rita snapshots.
