The Traveling Pal
In one of my favorite movies, Amelie, the main character tries to help out her father. He is a natural homebody, but he has always wanted to travel. So Amelie sets out to tamper with his gnome. She asks her friend, a traveling tour agent, to get Polaroids of the gnome in different parts of the world. Finally her efforts bore fruit; the father sets out to see the world. How exciting!
So in the summer of 2008, I took a small teddy bear with me to Cambodia and I took pictures with it. I completely forgot about this project until I was looking through my old photos. I don't remember to whom it belonged to. Now I'm curious.
