Another Walk - Another Few Frames

Another walk around Rockland Lake. Today the thermometer was straining to reach 60 degrees, a warning of the season to come. I almost turned back because of the cold and being rather tired but instead I forced my self to put in the milage. Soon I'll have to exercise indoors.  But that's a worry for another day.

Meanwhile here are today's images:

Need Some Inspiration; Take a Walk!

OK - so I'm not really walking for photo-inspiration; I'm walking for cardio-fitness. Regardless, I've been bringing my camera (Canon 5D) with me on these walks. My (almost) daily routine is the three-and-a-half miles miles around Rockland Lake. I start out at 6:30AM because after 8AM you've got to pay a $6.00 parking fee. Besides-the light is better in the morning!

Process That Film - NOW!

Hats on the Boardwalk/Venice Beach, CA

After Roberta (my wife) came back from Las Vegas last week I had the film processed from my Olympus Infinity Stylus (I love that little camera). Since the "digital revolution" that poor camera has been sitting in my camera bag - that was until Roberta needed a camera to take to Vegas. 

After processing I found that the film showed signs of heat and age damage.

I also have a Canon A2E SLR film camera that also sits in a bag - its been in the bag for nearly two years with the same roll of film in it, so having learned my lesson from the little Olympus I had that film developed - LO AND BEHOLD there were a few gems on it from a trip to California...I just don't remember when!

The moral of the story is; If you have any film laying around – get it to the lab ASAP!
