What's a concerto?
Here's one. It's a duet of solo instruments contrasted against its orchestral setting. See it?
Photographers have the ability to liberate these moments into a timeless place. Except for this picture taken in the streets of Florence, Italy last October this concerto will never happen this way again. But we can simultaneously preserve it and flash it throughout the world, over and over until somehow technology tires of this transmission mechanism. Or it might then even move to some other, not now even imagined, transmission mechanism. We however are the content creators. Content can become independent of media. So this concerto can leap from computers, to discs, to broadcast, to whatever. And this moment now is part of a potentially never ending concerto featuring an aging loving couple and a unique setting to meld with your imaginaton.
And not only will the moment never happen again, but savor it since your reflection on this concerto is also a unique moment which will never happen again.
