Disconnected yet connected

This disconnected connected world that we live in is a strange place sometimes. I accepted a link to like a page on Facebook. As I looked around the page (mostly to see if I wanted to like it), I came across a link to a young photojournalists page:

I am not a photojournalist. Not even close. I admire people that can put themselves out there to try to make a difference. I don’t always understand the need to do that but I admire it. Her photography is very moving.

I checked out her Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/@CamilleLep
Her tweets and photography were intense.

Then I moved to another site:

And last…. I went to this site. None of the other sites mentioned that she has been killed. Maybe it’s too soon?

26 is way too young to leave this earth. In some ways I guess she is still here, inside this giant neural net called the web. Or maybe that is just a feel good sentiment. I suppose that this sort of thing happens a lot but for some reason, this struck a chord (minor chord to my musician friends) in me.

About Michael Lloyd

I was born in Odessa, Texas and raised everywhere else. I have four grown children and three grandsons and a granddaughter that I love dearly. I love photography. I've been making images since I was 8. I enjoy restoring vintage electronics. I love being around other photographers. I enjoy sharing what little I know about the craft of photography with anyone that is interested. Life is good. View all posts by Michael Lloyd
