It is hell to get old! Gravity takes over, wrinkles set in, grey hair becomes harder to colour and your vision goes to shit! Um, I mean you wind up needing bifocals! I may have mentioned that I took photos of the first mattress with both the phone camera and the trusty old film camera? Well, it turns out that it is a good thing I have the phone camera!
I have not been taking a lot of pictures lately, so wasn't sure what else was on the roll of film in the camera and decided I would take the pictures and develop the roll whether I finished it or not. It seems the last time I had a roll of film developed was in 2004. I am thinking the first photos on the roll are from around that time. I know this, because the photo shop where I get them developed, well, when I was picking them up, the girl kept insisting that only one roll was back, that's because I only dropped one off - when was the other left here? Oh, 2004! So, she took that off the computer - I assume I did pick it up.
I have a half dozen good pictures and about 18 out of focus pictures of the bed with the dirt and the snags. Did, I mention you need bifocals when you get old? Did I mention that you also lose all common sense?
I couldn't look through the viewer through the bottom portion of my glasses, so I took them off! I do this quite regularly, sometimes I can just see better without the damned glasses. In doing this, it never occurred to me that if it is in focus through the viewer that the photo itself will be out of focus. I am so f*cking dumb sometimes! I guess my next purchase when I can afford it will be a digital camera. The quality on the phone camera is not that great, but it will do in the mean time. Oh and it's not as though I haven't been taking pictures, I have a Polaroid that I use to snap pics of the cat and other things. Frankly, I have taken more photos with the phone in the last few months than with either of the other cameras. I guess I am all about instant gratification.
How about you snappy people? I will need suggestions for a moderately priced camera in awhile, what do you use.
