what he used to look like

I was reading a post that included a picture of the blogger at the bottom. I thought, I wonder how aged that picture is. And then I thought, every picture is what someone used to look like.

Social. I hate the term. Old people think they're so cool when they say it. But, the likes of facebook and pinterest and instagram and even facetime offer a promise of pictures of who people are, not who they were, as they shorten the timeline of picture development and distribution. It's a false promise.

Every picture is what someone used to look like.  Just like these words are what I used to think.

Every picture is what someone used to look like. Even celebrities, even yours, even mine, even God's.
