goodbye, mr. camera friend

goodbye, mr. camera friend

so, this is how it goes: shortly after i purchased a nikon d50, i decided that i liked it. shortly thereafter, i decided that i did not. it's sad that i have to blow several hundred dollars before i make a decision as such, but logic and my head are not synonymous.  if we were to make a venn diagram of my own logical process and real logical thinking, they would not overlap.  ever. so, sadly, mr d50 has to go.  i have to send him on to a good home so that i can instead buy a canon camera, because i simply cannot live another minute without iso100 or a lightup status lcd or a depth-of-field preview. goodbye, mr. d50.  you will be missed.

so, we're driving to walgreens to develop film, as we haven't our own darkroom. at the counter, we say: i have some monochrome prints i need developed. mr. clerk says: huh? there's a long pause.  then we say: i... erm... have black and white film to develop? mr. clerk says: oh, well, golly.  sure, but we have to mail them in.  we no longer develop black and white in-house. we say: oh.  well.  just so you know, this set has to be pulled two stops. mr. clerk: what? we say: you know, pulled two stops.  i accidentally shot iso 100.  it's 400iso film. mr clerk:  iso? *sigh* well, here's to defeat.

Thanks for the watch, mate.
Hope you're posting some more of your work soon. And never forget to shoot the Minolta! That cutie needs attention! ;)
any time, my friend. you're a great photographer, and it's encouraging to find someone else keeping the minolta flame alive.

i think my other cameras are probably getting jealous of all the attention my sr-t 101 gets...
