She is sat with a girl that hides her face in her fringe  and a friend that reminds her of hedgehog. She will remember tonight in the smell of fruit cider and cigarette smimg_20170107_0007oke. A haze of the fuzzy Polaroid pictures they are sorting through, one selected and snuck among the postcards.

It lives here now a picture of them amid pictures of places more enduring then this moment.
Places more permanent then people, but if she takes a photograph will this moment live on. Or will these images fade away and damage along side her memory?
