Perfume or Electronic Device?

Perfume or Electronic Device?
I've never had one before.

I was eligible for a replacement phone and ERJ told me the iPhone 4S would be FREEEEE because Apple recently released its new iPhone line. I've never had one and am looking forward to using the wonderful camera while I am standing around downtown at the bus stops. Maybe Diane Arbus was able to coax unsuspecting subjects into the black widow's web of her camera's aperture, but many other greats from the past were not so able or inclined. I forget the name of the guy who affixed a camera inside his coat (cameras then were huge and the weather wasn't exactly Las Vegas) and took pictures of poor souls on the subway.

Anyhow, the phone arrived today. As though it were on the list of Most Important Objects on Earth. Within forty-eight brief hours of ordering it. At no cost. Lots of things you don't want to think about too hard because it is skeery.

I envisioned myself tearing it open and setting it up and taking it along with Chloe and I on our evening walk. But no way, Jose! It is just too cool to open. It must stay in this state of suspended animation for a bit.

The box is pretty close to 5 inches long by 3 inches wide by 2 inches deep. I'm pretty sure that a 3 x 5 rectangle is some kind of Perfect. I liked this photograph because of the glow around the bottom facing edges. I've been learning about Western and Eastern principles of composition in art. Fascinating. Want me to bore you? There really is so much more to it than I realized. Fascinating. Er, I already said that. Anyhow, I know this photo casts the principles to the wind and I do have photos I took that do not. The worst offense probably is that I horizontally bisected the image plane. But, again, the underglow trumps everything. There is the suggestion of a halo, a hovering.

Who knows when I will actually open it. ? I don't think there is any time limit on these things. My sister I think has been known to buy things and leave them untouched for weeks, months even. Maybe this is a symptom of how much she understands that the enjoyment is in the journey.

This phone costs a fortune when it isn't free. Since it arrived this afternoon, I have been realizing how it is way more powerful than the early Mac computers. Probably more so than the middle Mac computers. The Babby's Great Grandmother was the pioneer in our family who first raised her hand to help support Apple's (informal?) R&D funding program. She would have a story to tell about how much that early Mac cost and what it could do. And now we have that and much more in our handies.

Now if I can just manage to get my fingers to cooperate.
