    He can't have been very experienced at this kind of thing. He didn't even ask for alternative takes? Dog on the roof with the goats, goats on the barn roof, can we get a horse on the roof?, wouldn't it look great if.... etc. You obviously needed an art director on this shoot.

    Great story.

    Great stories, Don... thanks for sharing. Gave me a good laugh over my morning coffee. Those b-day pictures will be very meaningful to the grand and great grand young 'uns!

    Perhaps the goat pic will be meaningul to the "kids", too.

    In every good story, there is ALWAYS a little bull....

    df you nailed it. I am a computer professional and I find dealing with a DC a PITA. Much easier and better results when I can just drop off a roll of film. I wonder how people that stink at computers do it?

    Soon they will be selling strips of disposable memory that you drop off at the lab.
    art is about managing compromise

    Many labs will take memory cards and sticks, along with CD's, DVD's and zips. From the consumer level it is an interesting phenomenon. People used to shoot film, drop it off and come back for the prints. Years latter you can find the prints (often faded and or stuck together), but the negs are no where to be found.

    Now people load up there memory cards, print a few out, email some, post a few on the net, or even drop the card/stick etc. off to have prints made. They then delete the originals and move on.

    Its sad, I wonder if we can blame Bic

    For the disposability trend, or for people burning their negatives?

    I propose that all APUGers write to Bic and demand they revert to manufacturing fountain pens, refillable sturdy metal lighters, and straightrazors. We have enough clout that we can turn this thing around if we all pull together.
