I am reading a rather quirky (in a very good way) book, The Infinites by the Irish author John Banville. It is my first read - and will not be my last - of one of his books inasmuch as his writing, this book as an example, has been described by various critics as:

... bordering on the divine ... intriguing, complex and ultimately elusive ... rife with mischief, as well as godly / authorual omnniscience, irony and wordplay ...

And, it is his wordplay that has me mesmerized because, as another critic stated, "If Banville is capable of writing an unmemorable sentence, he has succesfully concealed the evidence." I have dogeared so many pages with remarkable sentences which, although they relate to / describe the general human condition, are applicable to the medium of photography ...

... He bustles her out through the back door, which catches and gives a rattling shudder, as it always does: how steadfast in your world are the humblest things, and yet how shamefully little notice you take of them.

FYI, the preceeding rebuke is deliverd by the Greek god Hermes who is the book's narrator - as I wrote, quirky.
