Writer's Block: I'm Taking It With Me

If you lived on a deserted island and could only have one photograph, which one would it be?

You know what I started reading that and at first much to my surprise it seemed to be a decent non-photography related question involving desert islands. Much to my horror as I read on even this simple premise was twisted by the foul machinations of the photography obsessed nightmare that is Writer's Block. You know what photograph I'd have with me. It'd be none. Because photographs can't cut down trees or help build rafts, they can't hunt for wild animals or help strip them down, they can't build a fire (unless you burn them which is rather limited use), they can't cook food, they can't plant a garden, they can't send an SOS message to any nearby ships or planes, they can't be used as a weapon to battle 'the others', they won't protect me from the smoke monster and they can't push the buttons every 108 minutes. Photographs are useless in all practical applications. Sure you can use them to remember things and all that jazz but that is what my memory is for. Go away with your stupid photography related questionings or I will burn your face with a tube of napalm lipstick!
