Smile and the world smiles with you….. Or something like that..
Just a quick diversion while I have 20 or 30 things going on all at the same time. As usual.. I’ll be getting caught up on comments this evening – or at least attempting to. I’ll also be getting caught up with those of you who’ve sitemailed me as well. I’m not ignoring you, I’m just in the middle of way too many things. And here I thought being retired would be relaxing! That’s what I get for thinking..
We’ve been doing a LOT of organizing and down-sizing with all the “stuff” we’ve accumulated over the years. In going through stuff that’s been stashed away in boxes on the top shelf of closets, I stumbled upon several rolls of film (remember film?) that had never been developed. There is a place in Overland Park, Kansas (about a 30-minute drive) that still processes film, so I took it there. The 2 rolls of color film were totally blank, but some of the black and white actually looked fine. Which leads to….
About the photo…
While working with a local modeling agency, we were doing some promotional work for a local day spa. This group of lovelies were some of the girls in the agency. The client wanted color for an ad campaign, but I had a second camera loaded with black and white (I usually had 2 or 3 cameras loaded for things like this), so I shot a bunch of that as well. Apparently, I misplaced the B&W in a box and forgot about it. Anyway to make a long story short, I was happy to see this roll turned out so well after 20+ years sitting in a box.
I’ll be putting together another Behind The Scenes video soon with some of the goings-ons around here. We are hoping to find another place to live, but it will most likely be next spring, realistically speaking. I’m ready to move yesterday, but we still have a lot of ducks to get in a row.
Anyway, thanks as always for stopping by, and for all your awesome comments and support!

How nice! Wondering; is the woman on the far right with the short blond hair captured with her eyes closing, or is she admiring the backside of the lady in front of her?

Neat. even after 20 years. I started out with disposable cameras in the late 1990s, progressed onto Canon FD SLR cameras, then Canon EOS, before going full digital.

That was a thing I always wanted to get into. I wanted a dark room, but, alas no money for that kinda thing. I miss those days when more things were done more by hand. Don't get me wrong, I love me my PC but it's no substitute for watching a print develop in the tray, or finishing up a hand illustrated poster that didn't blot 4 hours in.
