Drawing a blank

I’m going through a major period of writer’s block.

In times like these, I usually post a recipe.  But I’m too lazy to get off my butt and concoct something creative.

So, until I think of something better to say, y’all can check out my view at the beach on Mother’s Day.

By the by, the moment I took that photo was just after I received some very strange looks.  You see, gentle readers, I had just changed rolls of film in my camera.

That’s right.  I still use actual film.  Not exclusively, but a big chunk of the time.  That fact apparently downgraded my status on the boardwalk to that of a sideshow freak.

This is why I only go to the beach when the crowds are at their minimum.

    I love that photo. It’s neat. I also think it’s cool you still us a film camera. I’m wondering if I’d remember how to change film. I do have one though and I even know where it is. I do use that camera for weddings and important things. I like to have the “film” and it seems safer to me. I’ve lost “digital” photos in the past and when you have the film, it’s always there and never disappears.

      I like using the film camera simply because it forces me to seriously consider the shot I’m about to take. Sometimes I think it’s too easy to use the digital camera and erase something if it doesn’t turn out.

    Cool pic! I still shoot film every great once in a while. I have an old Canon AE-1 35mm. What are you shooting with???

      Thanks, Gary! Mine is a Minolta Dynax/Maxxum 3xi 35mm. It was my fiance’s, but since he rarely used it, I’ve commandeered it. I love it, but I need to figure out how to turn off the flash.

      I still have my old Pentax Zoom 90-WR lying around. It was the first major purchase I ever saved up for (a whopping $100 at the time!). It takes decent photos, but as a point-and-click, it doesn’t offer much control.

      I wish I knew if my dad still had his old Nikon…
