You can make a pinhole camera out of anything hollow and dark.
-It's gotta warp the image though, right?

I don't know about truths. A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, less you know.
And Stephen said something else, once. "The perfect con is one where everyone gets just the thing they wanted."
