Polaroids and Double-Exposures

I took these photos with a Kodak featuring my friend in the Mission District, then I found this old journal entry dated five years ago from when I was traveling in the Middle East.

January 1, 2009:

“Bombs were being dropped maybe 25 miles away in the Gaza Strip.  I really don’t know.  But over the heavy desert storm, I couldn’t tell the difference from thunder.  When I awoke to the new year the storm had calmed, then I heard the detonations – a loud boom a minute or two after the F16s swept by us overhead. It was a strangely timeless experience; I don’t think she or I will ever remember properly.  None of us will. Now though, palm trees are swaying with the tide, and the setting sun looks like a blanket over the red sea. I think I want to eat banana pancakes tomorrow.  I wonder what I will be doing in five years?”

Then there was this one, dated October 25, 2010:

“Mmm.  Emptiness.”
