    I thought I'd never do it. The idea got rejected again and again. Even
    though it seemed to have disappeared from my consciousness, it
    somehow wasn't forgotten and waited for a chance to pop up
    once more. A suppressed desire. It happened just now, probably
    as a result of drinking a few of beers in solitude.

    I lay in bed huddled to my girlfriend, looking into the darkness.
    When she fell asleep, I suddenly felt a terrible sense of loss. Not
    about anything particular, just a vague yet overwhelming emotion
    that good things pass and nothing pleasant remains. After a while
    I got up from bed and violently shook the mouse of my computer
    to wake it up. Then I went to eBay and bought the first and last roll
    of Kodachrome 64 in my life (fresh, process paid, surprisingly not too
    overpriced at all and with cheap shipping from Britain). I wish I
    could control myself better and hope that I'll eventually have the
    slides.

    No grasshopper. It is the way. You were not in control.

    Do not fight the way. Flow, and learn. You will become a keeper of the flame as well.

    last one was 14yrs ago, the one point development in switserland wasn't my cup of tea.
    it was a magic 1 roll experiment, but I don't dream of it anymore.
    I just shot a roll EB3 100 2stops pushed, magic contrast & saturation.
    K still got the right juice in there!
    let's buy and shoot lot's of it to attack the dodo extinction
