    Hello from the Wild Mid-west, land of crazy weather!

    Hi everyone,
    I've been lurking for a couple months now, and finally decided to register and post. My first camera, back in the '70s was a Kodak Instamatic. My parents gave it to me but the flash no longer worked (it used flash cubes) so I could only use it for outdoor photos. Mom and Dad shot slide film, so I did too.

    In the mid '80s I got a CHEAP 35mm (think along the lines of a Holga). IN '88 I moved up to a Pentax ME Super. Wonderful SLR. Picked up a P30T in the mid 90's to use as a second body for B&W.

    In 2001 I went over to the numeric, filmless side of photography. Stayed there for 10 years. Got a scanner for Christmas to digitize my old photos. As I was going through the file cabinet looking for a specific set of pictures to scan, my son (who is a big Penguins of Madagascar fan, but I digress) walked in and saw some slides in sleeves. His eyes got big and he said with wonder, "Dad, what are these?" I told him what they were and he said "Can we look at them?" I said sure, if my slide projector (which was still in the garage) still worked we would have a slide show that night. Went and got the slide projector which hadn't been used in 12 years out, and it still worked!

    That night my nephew happened to come over and we looked at my pictures of Yellowstone projected 2' x 3' on the wall. My nephew told me "These look better than Digital." I still knew where my P30T was so got it out (the 35-70mm zoom that was attached to it doesn't stop down any more but the 50mm prime lens and the 500mm cat lens still work) and ran a roll of film through it. It still worked, so here I am. Looking forward to finishing off my first roll of slide film in 10 years and projecting them on the wall in a darkened room.

    Hello and welcome to the family. My kids get a kick out of shooting slides and putting on an old fashioned show when they get new ones back from the lab.

    Salon de coiffure

    Salut à vous tous ,

    Pour commencer , donnez-moi la possibilité de vous démontrer mon appréciation pour chacune des super informations que j'ai retrouvées sur cet imposant site web .

    Je ne suis pas assuree d'être au bon section mais je n'en ai pas trouvé de meilleur.

    J'habite à Ross , ca . J'ai 35 années et j'ai deux très gentils enfants qui sont tous âgés entre cinq et 12 années (1 est adoptée ). J'aime particulièrement beaucoup les animaux et je tempte de leur donner les articles qui leur rendent l'existance plus festive .

    Merci d'avance pour toutes les super délibérations dans le futur et je vous remercie de votre compréhension pour mon français moins qu'idéal : ma langue maternelle est l'espagnol et je fais de mon mieux d'apprendre mais c'est très ardu !

    Bye bye

    Arthru
    bien choisir son salon de coiffure
