Mwachsmann | 4 comments A haunting short story about a couple who finds photos of themselves taken inside their house even though there is nobody else there. The pictures are of them doing mundane tasks, like washing the dishes. There is a photo of their bed. It gets creepier when they start to find photos of themselves taken from mere moments before, as if someone is in the house taking the photos of them, but nobody else is in the house. I can't even remember the climax of the story, only the unease it triggered inside me. And I can't remember if the pictures were specified as "Polaroids" or just "photos." I do remember that this story was featured on the Selected Shorts podcast a few years ago. I've asked Selected Shorts on Twitter and Facebook, but they don't respond. I've done tons of Google searches, too. Thank you!

Mwachsmann, have you tried WYNC's contact form for "Find a story, segment or piece of music" (on Selected Shorts)?
