I now wonder where the idea or of the ideology of creativity started. Shakespeare and company certainly stole from, copied each other’s writings. Before them, the Greeks didn’t both making up any new stories. I suspect that the ideology of creativity started when the bourgeoisie—when they rose up in all their splendor, as the history books put it—made a capitalistic marketplace for books. Today a writer earns money or a living by selling copyright, ownership to words. We all do, we writers, this scam, because we need to earn money, only most don’t admit it’s a scam. Nobody really owns nothing.

Only took me two full packs of Impossible Project film before I finally remembered how to use my Polaroid camera properly/decently. 

Oh well. 

I thought I was the only one that had this problem. But like some of my experiments, your final result made the whole thing worth it.

Put that image up for auction to buy yourself some more film packs.
