Yes, Non-digital cameras still exist!

SO, really fun. Yesterday it snowed ALL DAY. No joke, ALL DAY!

Today, it is super bright outside because of all the snow. Luckily, it's not really icy out, just some packed snow still on the ground. The sun really can't be seen beyond the white mass of cloud cover. But all the rays are still bouncing off the snow. Once Fry wakes up and gets off my lap, I'll get my camera that has all my pictures on it and post some.

I'm also super excited. I woke up motivated this morning to dust off the bag that has my 1984 Canon SLR in it (My dad gave it to me a few years ago.) I couldn't believe how long it has been since I took pictures with it. Luckily, I still had one roll of unused film in the bag. I went out and took pictures of the snow and everything for about 45 minutes. I'm glad I did.

Not using it for so long, you forget, you know, how perfect it feels in your hands, and how smooth you get to manually turn the lens to focus your photo. You get to change lenses, normal, telescopic. It was unreal. I think it was just what I needed. It was fun to walk around the back of the complex, and people looked at me like I was a real photographer. It was fun. This camera isn't light either. So, when I ran out of film, I grabbed my digital Nikon out of my pocket, and started shooting with that one. It just wasn't the same: and I love my Nikon! Crazy.

I still think it's funny and kinda lame how everyone thinks that they are a professional just because they own a digital camera.... haha, You Funny! I am NOT claiming to be a pro, but I love the photos and experience of when I'm out shooting.

That SLR reminds me of who I am, and I don't want to forget it

Can't wait to see the pictures! I was amazed when I saw that DFW airport got 12 inches of snow by Friday morning. Definitely different weather than in Mesa! Hope you guys stay safe.

The pictures are awesome. Can't wait for you to post them. You are a good photographer, no matter what kind of camera you use.

Ok girl... Canon. Nikon. Not sure what to think about that. :) Pick one....(Canon). haha..
But I love film. I would love to get an SLR film (Canon) camera soon. Next time I see you, lets go shooting. I want to play with your Canon, if that's ok. I think it will be fun.
And what's funny, is that I was just talking with a friend you shoots Nikon and we were discussing film SLR cameras. Very cool. Keep shooting girl. And I wanna see your photos. You're awesome! And creative!
