I don't have a point. I just wanted to crow about a successful printing session and the fun factor of using the photographic medium as it used to be done.
Well, thanks for sharing your story. Actually the point I take from this is that we should take more family pictures and don't take people around us for granted. Your kids will be around for a while longer so you have a good chance to build up a photographic memory. I blame myself for not taking the portraits of my parents while I had the time, the equipment and they were still around. It just breaks my heart, I was the "so-called" family photographer, and I took pictures for the last 25 years of everything under the sun except my parents. How stupid of me! Yes, I have the occasional snap-shot at X-Mas or a birthday party but have never asked them to sit for me for a family picture.
