The Enchanted Wall

I see through my iPhone. The dry stone wall I have discovered on my walk, its various fits and patterns, its structure and composition, its subtleties - all of this, I say in my hurry, will reveal itself to me later, when I study the photo.  

And when I look at the image later, I do appreciate many of the wall's qualities.  

But wait !  What was that ? 
I think I just saw something moving over there by the trees ! 

My iPhone may have captured a 'wall', and I may have 'tamed' that wall later, with my analysis of how it's built, and I might even think I know why it looks so 'good', and yet

The real wall ( the 'enchanted' wall has mysteriously disappeared through the cracks.
