I thought a pair of Levi's was meant to last forever


The snow that blanketed us two weeks ago is a distant memory now. And as the mild air races in constantly to fill that space behind the cold front, and Bristol is once again shrouded in the monotony of rain, it feels as though the snow – that beautifully claustrophobic and enchanting 'other' world so white and soft and closed – never existed. That's how we survive as humans, I think. Memories fade appropriately and we don't remember the cold and the disruption, and falling on blue ice. And it is incredible how quickly a complete landscape was washed away by a heavy shower of rain: complete transformation in less than one hour. How ephemeral this existence is. The beauty of photographs is that they lock moments in stillness and move them across time to alter memory. I just found a hole in my investment-buy Levi's, too. I thought a pair of Levi's was meant to last forever?
