Ideabird 3/7/12

in 1952 a photographer captures a picture of a black trumpet player at a Chicago train station. We follow the photograph through time as it is printed, put in a retrospective collection, and is finally one of the few images to survive the great burning. It is part of the human experience beamed into space, where it is the only piece received by an alien race long after the Earth is burnt to a cinder.
