Candid Camera

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.

    Loved the effects. NOwadays smartphones are too powerful and as efficient as a good camera.

    I see a protester everyday, when I look into the mirror. You see him too when you look into yours, don’t you, Sensei?
