    The things kids pick up....

    At dinner tonight my 5 year old was repeating "Developer, Stopper, Fixer, Water, Developer, Stopper, Fixer, Water, Developer, Stopper, Fixer, Water..." He had been watching me print last night in the darkroom. Amazing that he remembered that. Now if I can just get him to learn his alphabet and the other stuff he is supposed to learn at school...

    Great time to start getting him involved with photography! Now repeat after me.... "Make more pictures, make more pictures..."

    He'll be scratching his head the first time he hears that girls develop faster then boys...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Good thing it wasn't "Developer, Stopper, Fixer, Water, Aww Crap!"
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Stopper? I've heard it called Stop, Stop Bath, Short Stop, but never "stopper" before - first time for everything!

    He's going to be puzzled when he encounters digital. My fiance's nieces are bewildered that I shoot photos of them and can't show them right away.

    Yes, its the only one without an "er" at the end, so I guess he added that on.

    He actually went digital last week when he got a digital "Leap Pad" as a gift. He takes many pictures with it, but I don't think he considers it the same "Photography" he does with his film cameras. He has a bag of 35mm and 110 plastic cameras he plays with, occasionally I'll load them with film to see what develops (sorry for the bad pun). I think in his mind holding a camera up to the eye and 'clicking' vs holding that 'Pad' out at arms length are two totally different activities.

    But it IS!
    Real photograpy is done with the eye to the viewfinder!
    Ok I will make an exception for cameras with WLF.

    Kids do tend to pick up the darnedest things. The other day my daughter went running through the house yelling "MOM, DAD GOT A NEW CAMERA, ARE YOU GONNA KILL HIM NOW?".
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    It's a reasonable assumption!

    The stopper blocks the hole in the bottom of the sink.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
