I was told this  young man died in a car accident in NYC  shortly after this photo was taken in Western Massachusetts  about 1972.

Its still as real as it was then, but its a photograph . . .

of something, a photograph of a house is also a photograph of the sky, of trees, but people will generally, when they say its a photograph of _______ they say  its a photograph of the most complete, comprehensive  thing in the image,

Perhaps they say it that way because  people commonly assume a photograph is an image of something , its really a thing.

What is a thing?? We all know what a thing is, daily we use the word  even when we do not know what it means, or even when we do not share a common meaning..

A chance interaction?; a professional relationship?;  neighbors meeting in the park?

There should have been  moments when I took my self  seriously when  I could not connect future and present and was hiding from past.

The camera is a window to see into yourself or  its just a joke or a sutra or Gutei’s finger.

It was said of Gutei:

Gutei cheapens the teaching of Tenryū,
Emancipating the boy with a knife.
Compared to the Chinese god who pushed aside a mountain with one hand
Old Gutei is a poor imitator.
