The only photo of Pisa

So recently while returning from Glasgow Scotland, I had the pleasure of sitting in front of a happy couple that had just completed a whirlwind European vacation. The gentleman was in shorts and a red polo shirt and the woman, also in shorts, wore a flowery loose fitting shirt. They were both plump but seemed quite happy if not a little exhausted. The man in the duet got comfortable in the chair behind me and after an awkward silence finally came out with something that was on his mind. He said to his partner, “Honey, please dont take nine months to get your film processed this time. You know, when they rushed us all off that bus I broke into a sweat and completely forgot what I was doing. I left my camera on the seat of the bus. You now have the only photo of Pisa.”

There was something amusing and profound about the idea that the only photo of [the leaning tower of] Pisa is resting in the latent cannister of a happy yet exhausted tourist couple from middle America.
