Mary was walking down the block on a nice stroll with one of her children, Chris. Chris was just a baby, so Mary loved to put him in a little stroller and parade around their neighborhood. She was doing their normal routine, when she spotted a yard sale. The sale was going on at the house that normally kept to themselves, so Mary was instantly intrigued. Walking up to the yard, she found only one person watching the items. It was a younger teen.

"Excuse me?" Mary asked the sullen teen. "Do you live here?"

She looked up annoyed from her phone. "Nah. My crazy uncle lives here. He called me and asked me to help sell his things."

"Oh okay then." Mary said slightly disappointed. "I'll just have a look around then."

Mary strolled around, glancing at all the items. There were indeed some strange things there. A chicken's foot, a bunch of old books, some strange maps. Mary figured whoever this man was must've been an interesting character.

"Oh dear." Mary said. "You must've swiped this while I was at the yard sale huh baby?" She said concerned. "Well. No point in walking back with it now. I'll return it tomorrow. She examined it and realized it was a polaroid. It was fairly old, and all the markings on it were etched out. Some read really oddly. One part said "Reality alte..." while another said "Transfo...." Mary was fairly confused. There were only two things that were readable.

"Beware the camera. Photos taken will not appear to be the same as life. Beware the camera's choices." was on the front of the camera. The only other readable piece was a switch that said user awareness on/off. She switched it to on but nothing on the camera changed. That's when...
