[strangers] in the night

a few months ago, i ran across this website, showing a photo experiment in atlanta georgia. a disposable camera was tied to a bench, along with a note asking people to take pictures and have fun. at the end of the day, the camera was picked up and developed. the resulting images not only showed who had run across the camera but also showed off their artistic nature! finding this whole project incredibly fascinating and creative, i wanted to see what results, the same experiment, would turn up in wichita. with friday july the 31st, being wichita's final friday art gallery crawl, i, along with a few other photography nuts, set camera's out in different locations. i placed one camera in the delano district, and the other on the corner of douglas and emporia, and anxiously awaited the results! to my surprise and amazement, not only were the cameras still there, but their entire roll of film had been used as well! here's what turned up!
