She was a very sweet girl. She died less than two years after this picture was taken. She was on heroin and driving even though she had never been a driver and did not even have a license. She crossed a highway median and was crushed by a semi. She had been part of a crew that stole liquor and kegs from clubs to sell.
I pulled out the shoebox of polaroids to scan this morning. I haven’t looked at them in a while and there have been a lot of surprises, good and bad. It has been more than 15 years and it is impossible not to marvel at how young they look and to wonder how some of them look now. And then there are some like Natalie that make me wonder about other things.
