    LOL!

    I have my cameras, my husband has his shed full of tools (he is a mechanic by trade, not hobby. He has his multiple project vehicles waiting for warmer weather for him to work on.

    That's hilarious!
    Can't say my household fit's that mold- we've got 4 youngins, my wife has a much more 'successful' career than I have. (As a result of her superior education) I've done the stay at home dad thing for a few years, and probably am going to again within the next 6 months.

    But I still claim to be the more intelligent one, by default of my superior male chromosomes.

    (I'm only kidding, but I will be going into hiding now in case noone finds this humorous)

    Unfortunately, I don't have the quality photos to convince her to let me satisfy my G.A.S. (As my photo gallery proves)
    I need a new angle.

    Eat those words Gary!

    Congratulations Paul! Make nice photographs of your wife and family, and let her take the camera out, too. That might make the introduction a little less painful.
    All seriousness aside. When my first child was born, I set up my X-700 with the strobe to the correct f/stop and 1/60th second. Then I showed the ex how to focus and shoot. The camera was always out and I made sure that it was always loaded and the batteries were good. A lot of Kodak [and Fuji] moments were captured.

    lol! I went through the same thing awhile back with Olympus OM equipment, in fact I still have an occasional relapse.

    As far as the hidden cash thing - it's easy. That's why I have 2 side businesses that never seem to turn a profit...

    BOY she got off easy with you. You could have bought an entire darkroom to go with that too. Good thing you aren't into MF or LF. Divorce is saying, you're a dead man, nicely.

    Have a blast and be sure to take plenty of pics of the kids while they are at that magic age. I'm still printing pics of em from years ago.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    Just hope that you didn't get ripped off.

    Everytime I bring in a roll of film to be developed or I buy more rolls of film, she nags. Sigh.
    I wouldn't be using film if I had to have a lab develop it. It's my picture, and I should be controlling it's creation.

    And that is because you have the time to do so that is granted by being young.

    You should save your quote and look at it again twenty or thirty years from now! :rolleyes:

    I use film because I can use a darkroom. Take away the darkroom, and I wouldn't shoot film. I'd use a filmless camera.
