so remember film cameras??? my film SLR has been sitting collecting dust since we got our digital point and shoot...i swore i was never going to convert and than when we realized the convenience of going digital...well  my SLR has been sadly neglected!! lately, however, i have been missing the photo's that i got out my SLR...and those photo's were more flukes than that of great photography!! i always meant to take a photography class and learn what the functions of a camera like that were for. Well...andy took it upon himself to give me a crash course!!! he showed me just what my camera could do and let me tell you...i  cannot wait to play!!! now andy don't let this next sentence go to your head, but....it was probably the best lesson ever, he broke it down in a way that made the concepts easy to understand and even though there was a lot of information...it was awesome!!! and yes...even though it is film...i can practice the techniques and get it under my belt and upgrade to the digital version of my film SLR!! o yeah!!! i am excited about that!!! so thank you muchly andy!!!

most of these photo's are courtesy of ronda...most of mine are still on film!! here are just some favourites of the ones that ronda uploaded to my computer...there are more, but will have to wait until that chica slows down and can mail me out a burned cd of the other pictures!!! Rondas_visit_073
