I thought of that ages ago
Is it possible to write or create anything original anymore?
Possibly not. I think it is fair to say that we all share the same life route; birth to death. It is the stuff in the middle that is sometimes slightly different. To say we are all unique is not strictly true - love, loneliness, disappointment, illness, parenthood etc. are things we all experience in someway or another - this shared path is what makes us part of the collective human race. It is most probable that anything you write about on the internet will be a shared emotion, concept, or dream and somebody out there will be thinking, 'I thought of that ages ago'.
The only way forward is to adapt the concept of original thought and simply do things better...
Tri-X was once one of the most popular films used by photojournalists and many amateurs. It was manufactured by Eastman Kodak in the US, Kodak Canada, and Kodak Ltd in the United Kingdom. Kodak data-sheets used to recommend different processing times depending on where the film was manufactured. Its sales declined in the 1970s and 1980s due to the falling price and increasing popularity of colour film.
