blog intro

There's almost no correlation between the theme of the film roll and the photographed subjects in frames 16, 17, and 18 of our Last Frame series. But with a little imagination, each image hints at the environment of the documented event. And as a bonus, frame 17 features one of our favorite subjects: felines!
