I’m not a professional photographer. Not even an amateur photographer, either. And to prove it, the only camera I have is the one on my iPhone. I don’t take photographs with my iPhone. I take snapshots.
Most of the snapshots I take are of my family, my dog, and my cat. And of scenery. I rarely take what one might label “candid” snapshots, which are informal, unposed photos. In fact, pursuing through my more than 1500 pictures on my iPhone, there are probably fewer than a dozen candid snapshots.
But since today’s one-word prompt is “candid,” I thought I’d share with you a few of them. I’ve applied some filters to them to protect the identities of those innocent civilians who just happened to get in the way of my iPhone when I took the pictures. And all of these were taken at various protest marches last year against the current reigning president.
