When I went up to Cincy, mentioned in my previous post, I not only took my digital camera, but also took my regular 35mm camera, loaded since January with unused black and white film. I had decided that the church would be a perfect guinea pig subject for my first try at shooting b&w film. And it was. And now, finally, after three tries, I have a photo CD of that roll of film. Sarah at the Walmart was infinitely patient with me as she made and remade my CD until it contained all of the requisite files to make it work on my computer. She deserves an award. Maybe I'll call her manager and tell them how great she was... Anyway, all of that was by way of explanation that I have transferred the best of these b&w photos of St. E's to my fotopage, where you can now view and critique them.
On Saturday night, I joined a bunch of friends at my friend Joseph's house to celebrate his (50th?) birthday. I have a bunch of photos of that, too, but haven't gotten them loaded onto the fotopage yet. Just an advertisement of coming attractions... We had great fun there, and the guys coerced me into watching Donnie Darko, which Kyle had described as a "dark comedy". Yeah, so dark I couldn't see the comedy bits. :^) But, I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to sleep after watching the movie at 11:00PM. Maybe I'm getting better. I don't think I'm quite ready to test that theory, however. Anyway, I see that this post is beginning to lose coherence (if ever there was any), and it will soon be time for Last Comic Standing to come on, so I think I'll sign off for now. Go Tammy Pescatelli! :^)
