excuse me sir, can i take your picture with this camera right here? / i want to demonstrate to my friends back home that some people in korea wear glasses frames without any lenses in them because they think it looks cool. / oh you don't speak english very well? / *snap* / well thank you anyway, it's alright, i will just ask somebody else then.

am not the only one.

popped polaroids.
