My body is a cage

Last night I was listening to Arcade Fire’s My Body is a Cage and it reminded me of this Impossible Film photo taken with the Polaroid last weekend.


My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I’m standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It’s a hollow play
But they’ll clap anyway

    • Daphne Chan Photography - This was shot using Impossible film and a Polaroid camera. No filters were used-this is just a straight scan of the film.ReplyCancel
