For a while I would tell people if they really wanted to know. Invariably, when I did the excitement would drain from their faces and they'd say, "Oh." with a pathetic tone of resignation.

And that was it, knowing the answer pissed all over their parade and destroyed their interest in and enjoyment of the photos.

Sometimes, the questions are better than the answers.
Did you post them on the cellar? Do you still have them? That sounds really interesting and I'd love to see!
