I was so excited to get my first 35mm camera that did all the focusing for me. I carried that camera everywhere. SuZQ talks about how the pictures in the family album changed after I got that camera- for the better, thank you. You often hear it talked about how the number of pictures get fewer and fewer with each child. That didn't happen in this house. I have a ridiculous number of pictures of all three of mine and everyone else too.
Do you recall, back in the day, having to send the pictures off and wait to get them back? How much it cost if you wanted a 5 by 7 or a wallet size?
One day, some 14 years after receiving that wonderful gift, it gave it up and couldn't be repaired. To my knowledge that is the only material possession I ever cried over, and cry I did.
Now it's so easy, but do you wonder what will ever happen to all these pictures we take on our computer, I-pad, I-phone, oh yeah, and with cameras? I mean, gee. I take a ridiculous number of pictures.
