I want to tell you about my walk on the Sandspit last night, but am forcing myself to wait for the photos.With town a 30 mile round trip, and an already scheduled Veterinarian visit...I am trying to be responsible and do everything on one trip ($2.95/gallon = local gas price) Since I use film, they have to be developed first.
What? Oh, film...well, before digital cameras, people used to make pictures on a roll of thin plastic coated with a light sensitive emulsion. Now here's the weird part, you actually have to wait...yes, I used the word WAIT... for your pictures to be developed by other people.
Developed? Uhm, well...with film you don't know if your shots are good or not until they are d-e-v-e-l-o-p-e-d...it's kind of like a green tomato on the vine ripening into a juicy red treat...only a little faster.
A few diehards still use the stuff, this FILM, mostly because they bought a brand new film camera just before digitals became affordable.
So, in a nutshell, I will post again after returning from a 1:30pm vet appointment/photo development/errand trip. Right now, I need to finish my coffee and give Flounder and Feather a bath so the vet will think we are responsible pet owners.
Regarding the picture...what are your lunch plans today?
