Flickr a Week 47a: ‘Verbose, Sentimental Foolery’

Ten years ago, following in Amazon’s Kindle footsteps, Apple released the original iPad. Between dedicated e-readers and tablets—aghast, also smartphones—how people read has dramatically changed since Sarah Ross shot self-titled “Verbose, Sentimental Foolery” on Oct. 6, 2010 using Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi. Vitals: f/8, ISO 100, 1/200 sec, 42mm. A decade later, black-and-white composition, grainy texture, and subject matter give her photo nostalgic allure.

From McLean, Va., Sarah joined Flickr in February 2008. While she owns the same, now aged, digital camera, in 2020 her main shooter is iPhone 7.
