The Washington Post sent disposable camera to 25 women and asked them to document their life.

The set of images are at times refreshingly nostalgic and also annoyingly modern. The current fascination with photographing oneself is present, in either out-of-focus selfies (the minimum focusing distance on these cameras is larger than the average arm length) or they handed to camera to others and asked them to photograph themselves.

But there are also some comments about the surprises, about the value of the waiting. Not knowing what you have immediately caused some folks to be more intentional with that moment and, with some others, caused them to not make very good images.
