Tablet of Stone

From a visit to the Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence. Crowds gather around Michelangelo's David in awe of this 500 year old 17 ft high statue of the biblical hero. With arms outstretched almost all are holding up tablets or mobile phones.

At first it appears like a collective act of worship, on closer inspection you see that everyone is intently framing their own iconographic image. This presents an opportunity to experience composition through another’s eyes, with fingers poised we simultaneously capture our own personal “decisive moment”.
