Ice forms on the surface of Father Pitt’s favorite little stream in Mount Lebanon, but the water continues to flow underneath. Old Pa Pitt visited this little stream yet again with his oldest digital camera to prove to himself that a thirteen-year-old brick could still take a decent picture. It can. It is a bit amusing to think of a thirteen-year-old camera as “old,” since old Pa Pitt seldom used a film camera that was younger than thirty years old, and often used cameras approaching their century mark. But in digital photography, thirteen years takes us back to the Neolithic Age.
Why should the beautiful die?
