A Bug’s Eye

The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have a thing for older Volkswagen Beetles from the 60’s and 70’s. They were just a fun car to look at and I knew so many people who had them at one time or another. I have a story about an incident that happened in a VW Beetle that would surely leave you laughing, but to tell it would be admitting to my mother that as a teenager I was not a perfect angel. And although that was a long time ago, it’s not an illusion I’m prepared to dispel yet.

I’m now on Instagram at @EarlHarrisPhoto, where I am posting photos captured and edited solely on my iPhone. This tends to include quite a few cat photos, so if you’re so inclined…


  1. Love it! And when I got the original message I expected to see an actual insect eye image, Imagine when I got to see my favorite car headlight.


  2. I don’t see the photographers reflection in the chrome. Like the eBay toaster that was floating all over the web at one point, With the fat naked man taking the picture.
