“Hi, do you know what day it is today?“ “Friday.“ “Yes, Friday, that’s my name. Today is my name.“ A broad grin spread across his face. “Can I take your picture?“ I laughed and was amused that he would want to take my picture. When he showed me the picture I couldn’t really see anything, the mobile phone was small and old and the sun stood low on the horizon. “You like it?” “Yes, I like it.” I wanted to be polite and was relatively certain that it would be a good photo. Friday laughed at this loudly . “Look, look. There’s no picture. My phone has no camera!” In the place where only seconds ago I thought I had seen the contours of my face there was nothing but the crude drawing of a stick figure. After that, both of us were laughing.
