JUST THINK'N

I've been reading Lisa's recent entries. I'm going to have to chew on that for awhile and see what I come up with.

The 35mm is in for a tune-up. A little more than that actually. There are little rubber gaskets that cushion some of the parts and make for a good seal when you seat the lens. I've had Old Faithful longer than my middle sister, Roberta, has been married and she tied the knot in '77. Unfortunately the gaskets are as old as the camera and are shedding worse than the cats. Believe me, having little pieces of rubber falling on the mirrors and prisms inside the camera is not a good thing. It is almost impossible for an amateur (me) to clean it up properly.

I've got several rolls of film to work through anyway, not being able to shoot isn't a hardship. I do have the digital, but most of the results I've been getting just aren't worth the trouble. I'm looking forward to getting a new computer this fall. The one I'm looking at works about three times as fast. I can upload video to my Frankenputer, but the results look like mosaics. I guess, I could claim I was going for an "arty" look but I don't think anyone would believe me. Anyway, check out the Webshots connection every week or so to see what's new. :-)

I got what I hope were some good close-ups of the roses this morning.
