    Thank you.
    It is now my desktop picture.
    You have a very good eye for photography.
    Do you have any training or are you self taught?

    Your welcome backlash. I have taken a couple of 2 day workshops with professional photographers, the best one being John Shaw. They were good, but mostly 35+ years of shooting and figuring out how to compose a picture. But still for every semi decent shot I get, I take 10 to 20 shots.

    When I used to shoot weddings, I always took 400 or so shots to get 100 excellent ones for a proof book. No digital back then!

    Times have changed.
    You didn't actually develop all those pictures did you?
    We have boxes and boxes of old photos. A lot of them we have no idea who the people are because they were before our time.
    We just found a bunch more pictures when we cleaned the shed.
    Also found some VHS tapes from family gatherings and I would like to watch those if I can find my old VHS player to connect to my new smart TV.
    I wish there was a cheap and fast way to convert pictures to digital. I have a device to convert videos to digital but it takes a long time and it's a pain to edit.
    I also know the digital images wouldn't be watched so it's kind of a waste of time.

    Do you have a multi-function printer? If so, just use the scanner option.

    Snappy, ive done several weddings. I hated it. Made me so nervous that i was going to screw up their big day. I too took a lot of shots and back then it was all film. I never got into darkroom work, but had a great local store that did.

    For people i always used Kodak film, but for anything nature it was Fuji Velvia 50 iso only. Imo slide film was so much better than print. In particular if you wanted to do enlargements. I still have a brick of Velvia in my freezer.

    Digital is cheaper, but i dont like the final results as good. Plus iive never learned photoshop. And a good scanner/printer makes short work of taking prints to digital. Just make copies to at least 2 drives. I went thru 1000s of prints doing just that and had a hard drive failure. Lost it all. I was so discouraged i gave up on it for nearly a year.

    Actually, either my assistant or I worked at a photo lab most of the years that I had my business, so yes, I or she, did develop and print the photos but not by hand.

    By the time I closed my business, I pretty much hated it. Was averaging about 7 weddings a month plus some portraits. I didn't hate the weddings as I had an assistant (thank God)! I do wish now that I had done it as a hobby instead of a business.

    I learned photography at the Police Dept. in Sarasota, FL where I was a criminalistics tech back in the late 70's, early 80's. Shooting crime scenes, evidence and autopsies and developing and printing most of the photos. Honestly, that was the most interesting job! And I was so young! LOL

    Nice picture.
    I wonder why people are naturally attracted to waterfalls.
    I know I am, I'll stop just to watch one.

    A friend on a local forum got a new puppy, a 5 week old Dogue DeBordeaux. They couldn't settle on a name for her, so he posted a thread requesting suggestions.

    Well, he picked my suggestion and posted this adorable pic:

    Kuma.jpg

    Kuma is Japanese for Bear (which is about how big she's gonna get, lol)

    Found this little guy in my chicken coop tonight. Don't know how he got in. Fortunately he was to small to hurt my chickens but there was a small flock of sparrows hiding in the nest boxes. For size context the fencing against the side of the barn is 4x4 and the rest is 2x4. The 4x4 is just leaning there, the 2x4 is connected to the barn.

    A small hawk chased a finch into our window. It hit really hard and the hawk was all over it.
    Finch feathers and blood everywhere and that little hawk flew off with his dinner.
    The hawk flies by and the finches all scramble away so they must know he's looking for dinner.

    Did the hawk get out or did you have to help him?

    We let him out after taking lots of pictures. No idea how he got in. I couldn't find a single gap big enough.

    Odd photo but that’s me… It was a list of low priority items I’ve needed to replace going back decades in some cases. I ordered those items when I ordered my fluke meter a couple of weeks ago.

    Here is one of those items… A pack of sewing needles… The pack on the right I purchased between 37 and 44 years ago… not sure exactly what year. They have been with me all these years. Most of the needles were lost, the rest were tarnished badly and a few were starting to rust.

    I was shocked that I found the pack on the left at the big internet store… the same pack of needles made by Singer! I thought it funny… How often can you buy the same item 40 years later? o_O

    When a company has a good product that does what it's suppose to do why fool with it?
    New and improved isn't always a good thing.
    I remember those packages of sewing needles from when I was a kid.
    Just about every female I knew had one.
    I bought some needles to sew on buttons for my suspenders and they had really small eyes and they are dull. I have to push hard to get them through my jeans.
    They were, of course made in China.
