A Photo Of Me 15+, unless accompanied by an adult
South Australian Premiere
I'm a baby in a 1950s backyard with my toys and my family, facing a box camera.
I'm a sleepy child at the Darra "pictures", waking up to a film noir, watching a doomed man.
My mind flickers from past to present, in memories and dreams.
The man dies.
The photo is taken.
I walk home from the "pictures", fast asleep.
