Five More Minutes With “Remains” Photos

One of my favorite activities during our recent cruise from Lisbon, Portugal, to London, aboard the Seabourn Sojourn was taking iPhone4 photos using my two favorite apps: Camera+ and Hipstamatic.

And one of the recurring themes of my photos during our 18-day journey turned out to be pictures of what I describe as “Remains.”

Remains might be of a decaying window (as above). Or graffiti, or remains of a favorite meal (think of the shells that remain after you’ve enjoyed raw oysters).

Below is a rogue’s gallery of some of my best photos, which are very much in the Five More Minutes With zeitgeist. For, like loved ones we are no longer with us, these “Remains” are also well worth remembering.
