"The consequences of our actions take us by the scruff of the neck, altogether indifferent to the fact that we have 'improved' in the meantime." - Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

It is with great displeasure that I admit that Nietzsche is most likely correct yet again.

I like black and white film because it doesn't quite depict reality as we experience it. There's something much more ethereal about film. It gives us a somewhat false memory of an event just as our actual memory does, but we believe both because they're so vivid! I made this image at the Lincoln Park Zoo two years ago and I chose it to be my first of, hopefully, many images I'm selling on Etsy.
