This is a photograph of Ken Griffey Jr taking a photograph.

Or, to put it more accurately, this is a screen grab of a motion picture camera capturing a picture of Ken Griffey Jr in the midst of capturing a photo of his son, Trey Griffey, playing college football. 

And this screen grab of a moving picture, being just one frame of 26 per second, has captured an infinitesimal fraction of Ken Griffey Jr’s life, one that has already bypassed simple concerns like Baseball and Home Runs, choosing instead to embrace Art and the Essence of Living Creatures. 

This is the end point of all things. This is the heat death of the universe. Ken Griffey Jr is an old Dad.
