Shattered

There's a story behind this rather beaten up piece of technology, but I'll spare y'all the details as I suspect it'll be of interest to, um, no one.

But I thought it made a neat spectacle all the same. Shattered screens have a bizarre appeal, and for the life of me I can't figure out what that appeal is (please enlighten me if you've got any thoughts on this.)

What occurred to me as I shot this with the admittedly limited camera in my BlackBerry, though, is how temporary these things are. Broken items don't stick around long before they get tossed, so you either snap 'em while you can or lose the moment forever.

This particular example was part of my life for all of three minutes, so I hope this lameoid photo sticks in my brain a little longer than that. I guess we all need the occasional reminder of how fragile things - and life - can be.

Your turn: It's been a while since we did the caption thing, so in the interest of informal Monday fun, have at it. How would you caption this photo?

"Struggling, to hold it all together"

Shattered is on the thin line between broken and unbroken - isn't it a struggle to hold it there, don't you think?
