Early on

In my earliest days I was using black and white film. I was poor. Photography was expensive. Relative to zero income, it was a fortune. I wanted to shoot pictures… I transitioned to color slide. A two week vacation would be under 40 rolls of film – less than 1440 pictures. Ha ha, I can shoot that much in less than a day.

This slide conjures up a lot of memories. Get in line early and stand and wait if you want some kind of view of the spectacle. And the slide is softly focused. Age of the slide and degradation over time? Or was it the nature of the film? Or the photographer? Or the slide scanner limitations? Who knows? I could do better. But then there’s no desire to brave the crowds and stand and wait and…. They can change without me.
