Photos

Every now and then I'll come across photographs from the past, back when people had a limited copy of their memories rather then gigs of data. I'm still on the fence on whether or not having all the photos we can possibly want is something good or limiting.

Anyways, I found this darkened photo and wondered what would happen if I tried to lighten it up. Contrary to my expectations, it turned green with blobs that could be humans.

There really is no point to this post, I just thought it looked cool.

I was a goofy child.
