In a time in the not so far distant past (for ole you youngins' out there) there used to be this thing called film. You actually had to load it, take the time to get your shots right, take the shot and then take the film to have the negatives developed and get prints made. Lead to a lot of anxiety all that dang waiting.

Then a company came along with something a little better. Still had to buy the film but it was more instant in that the photo developed right before your eyes.

With poor management, a Panzi scheme,and the EPA (dealt with some of the chemicals used)in the US, those times are long gone.


Or,,,,,are they?

Nice shot and stroll down memory lane Pete. :)

Not sure that "better" is the right word. Quicker and more convenient maybe, but the results weren't usually better that film. :)

Thanks everyone for taking the time to check out this 52 in the past. I really appreciate it. I did finish it and on time without missing any weeks. If you would like to check the photos out , you can here

Still undecided about doing another one. This is the third 52 I did as well as a 365. Kind of running out of ideas.................


Anyhow, just wanted to check in and look around a little. You guys and gals have been busy.
