Have you ever thought of how great it would be to invent a Time Machine ?
Real Sci-Fi ...Jules Verne type of stuff huh ?
Well its already been done....
A Photograph is the perfect time machine...
Elusive time is captured and Tamed in a simple photograph.
We often take these little miracles for granted, but we shouldnt.
