Writing 101: Third Time’s the Charm

Coughing, sneezing, and sneezing and coughing.  Days have past and I’ve been sifting through cardboard boxes that have gather dust and deteriorated with the passing of time.  These boxes were resting in a darkroom ignored for years until now.  The past few days have been the slowest days I’ve ever experience.  Sifting through boxes, after boxes, none of them having any content of value or importance.  Just old papers of bills and receipts, a few boxes fill with old newspaper clips, but nothing to spark an interest to get me excited.  As time slowing ticks by and thirty minutes until lunch break, I open another boxes that appears the same like all the others.  The content of this box filled with old folded clothes, but I as slowing remove the clothes from the box, I come upon another box inside.  This box is the size of a shoe boxes with the label on the side of the box, indicting the shoe size and the price. The ink has faded just like the other items that contain written content, but not to difficult to make out.  Size 7.5, mens.  I remove the shoe box cover, thinking I would fine shoes that once belong to someone. I glance inside and see a old camera along with some rolls of film. This shoe box now has my undivided attention and my curiosity spikes. Just like a two year old discovering something new that they never seen before.  The extra rolls of film seem to be exposed, but awhile inspecting the camera, there is still a role loaded into the camera.  The actual owner never got to finish the roll of film inside the camera.  I could only images what the photographer was photography.  My mine begin to wonder what could be expose on these extra rolls of film.  Could it be a family vacation, a special event like a wedding or maybe something important.  It will be mystery until the rolls of film are developed that will relieve their secrets.
