Soul Capturing: A 1 Part History of the Current State of Personal Home Photography

I wonder how many landfills are seeping to the frills with old pictures of people who were asked to “stand together there with your [insert friend/sibling/parent] and smile”, only to leave behind a photograph full of discomforting smiles reminiscent of the faces people likely make while simultaneously having a bowel movement and giving birth through the mouth. If there’s one thing I hope the world’s greatest minds invent, it’s a camera contact lens, so that by simply blinking you take a picture. That way, people will have no idea you’re about to capture their soul on film and you’ll be able to catch real life instead of random poses.

Of course, if you’re ever going to take a picture of me, please friends, let me know. I like to strike random poses.
