See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. It was the first thing that Andrew thought every time he saw the three box cameras sitting like the three monkeys of an old children’s tale on the top shelf. One would think that such objects would not be capable of making such distinctions. But that would not be true. For these cameras had heard evil, seen evil and spoken of it through every photo Andrew took.
A faint breeze wafted through the photos clipped to the twine causing them to shift like wind chimes. Normally an impossibility in this closed dark room, but it told Andrew that he was not alone. The jars of zinc bromide, silver nitrate and sea salt jingled lightly. On the other side of the room hung several wooden shelves lined with daguerreotype and tintype photographs along with developing chemicals, paper and glass plates.
