In an old album, I discovered several of my baby photos that I had not seen before. I have no clue how they got there.
They are unlike all the other photos I have from that time. It is easy to see that these ‘new’ photos were taken with a different camera, and were developed on different photo paper, than all my other baby pictures.
I asked my family members if they had given me the photos. They all said no.
Next, I checked online. A few years ago, I had scanned and uploaded all my baby photos to my computer for safekeeping. The ‘new’ ones were not there.
Then, there is also the issue of where the photos were located. I found them in the middle of my photo album. All the photos are placed in correct chronological order. This implies that I was in possession of said photos when I originally created the album.
Following that logic, if I had been in possession of the photos when I scanned the album, why were they not part of the online collection? And, most importantly, why do I not remember them?
Nothing about these pictures makes any sense to me, yet, somehow, I am now in the possession of five ‘new’ photos of my childhood.
Could these photos have come from an alternate reality? Are they evidence of a timeline jump?
What do you think?
