The picture I take today, tomorrow it could mean . . .

Cherryflava has photos from last year’s Cape Times ad campaign about how the world can change in a day.

They have photos from the day before 9/11, the dropping of the A-bomb on Hiroshima, the JFK assassination, and the Soweto riots.

Makes you think that any photo you take could be the last one for that subject.

One thought on “The picture I take today, tomorrow it could mean . . .

  1. I completely agree with some of the comments on Cherryflava about the appropriateness of these images to sell newspapers. They’re all about tragedy, and there’s something sickeningly “Marketing” about such a move. If they were images of a team the day before winning the superbowl, or a poor family the day before winning the lottery, or an unknown band before they break into the limelight, I’d be less off put but the usage. OR if these images were being used to advertise something tied to the importance of family, friends, priorities, connections and the fragile nature of assuming something there today will be there tomorrow, then I’d also be less disturbed. But for a newspaper? Come on.

    It’s sad and tragic, but it’s been proven over and over; good news does not sell ad space.
