There is a darkroom flashing with dim red lights. A person carefully puts the negatives into the cassette with both hands, focusing on the paper below with a magnifier moving up and down in flaring lights. An image emerges on the paper. The sound of splashing water and laughter brings the person back to the 1940s via this photo to look through a childhood in a big world. A person returns to childhood with dreams and imagination and enters a timeline without the restraint of time and space.
