Since the beginning of its history, myths, legends, and false fears evolved about photography. For example, some religious people believe that a camera could steal a person’s soul.

Lauren – Your photo draws me in and scares me away in the same moment. Beautiful spooky imagery. You should solicit writers to create a short story after viewing it. Lovely!
