After cleaning my room, I found a one-use camera that I hadn't gotten around to finish. I used up the rest of the film that weekend, and when my photos came back, I realized how much had changed.
When I found the Easy Shot, I vaguely remembered using it about a year and a half ago at a Lifeguard camp during the summer. I guess I had forgotten about the camera and it sat around waiting for me for a long while.
Looking back, I realized how much has changed about my friends and I, physically and between us. At the time, we were tight. Everyone called us the Four Blind Mice because we were “blind” without each other. I miss that so much.
I realize now how much really has changed. The four of us together almost never hang out anymore. We all of something or other to do. I guess we all figured, “Maybe tomorrow, next week, next month.”
And how coincidental is it, that the first picture I took after I found it, was a picture of Kira? One of my mice.
Anyhow, it was really cool at the same to see how much our faces have changed too. Our physical features change so much without us even seeing it happen. I thought we looked like babies hahaha, I guess it works best with young’uns huh?
If you ever want a wake up call, take photos of people you’re close to. Then, throw it in the back of your closet. In about a year or two, you’d be surprised how much things have changed. I did it unintentionally, but now, I’m kinda glad that I found it this way.
It’s also really cool that my film expired while it was sitting. I’m not sure that had anything to do with the results of the recent pictures, but man they are bursting with color! Try it, you might be surprised.
