Last night, today and tomorrow, I’m shooting video and photography at an Antiques Show downtown. I’ve shot it in some capacity for the past five years.
While shooting “B” roll last night, I happened upon a new vendor who sells 50,000,000 year old fossils. I imagine it’s shale with fossils embedded in the rock, but I didn’t get a chance to talk to the guy long. I grabbed a quick shot that I posted above. It’s not great, because I was there to shoot video last night.
I leaned to him, and I asked, “How do you feel when you hear people say the earth is only 6,000 years old, and here you are selling 50 million year old fossils?” And he said, “It gets my ire up.”
I laughed. He laughed.
We had an evolution moment.
