8x10" photo stuck to glass.
Found at a yard sale in Claverack a couple months ago (the seller gave it to me).
It reminded me of a scene in one of my favorite movies, Wim Wenders' Until the End of the World. In it, Max von Sydow's character has invented a ground-breaking device that can record the visual experiences of one person and then transfer them to the brain of a blind person, in this case his wife. The technology is still rough though, so the imagery the woman experiences, of her children and grandchildren, are quite blurry and broken.
