Ok, now bear with me. Last week I received an email from The Impossible Project updating their status and announcing a call for submissions for an Impossible Billboard in Times Square. Last night I was in another part of the house and heard a crash accompanied by a very odd noise that I didn't immediately identify. I looked from room to room hoping to discover what had fallen and couldn't see anything out of place. I decided to check the hall closet and found that an old SX70 had fallen from a shelf and in the process fired the shutter. I had no idea there was still film in the camera and don't know what made it shift and fall on its own. Of the 4 remaining exposures I now have one of a dark closet taken by the camera itself.
The basis of the entire project is Edward Land's statement "Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible". I think I'll make a scan and send it in.
(I am not addressing finding the ShakeIt Photo app on Saturday to make it an all Polaroid weekend)
