What is IT?


About two years ago, as part of the monthly photography scavenger hunt I participate in, we were asked to take a photo to represent the phrase, “This is it.” It was just after the Michael Jackson film of the same name came out. I wandered the streets of Manchester, taking various photos of the letters I and T in signs, thinking I would combine them afterwards to spell “it” repeatedly… in the end, I took a photo of a very dirty Infiniti’s name plate, and used that to make my “it” photo.

I’m thinking about cars today because the car I’ve been driving for four and a half years had a rough weekend, and my mechanic told me it was going to cost many thousands of dollars to get it fixed properly. No fun.
