I had a whole role of film which I excitedly took to the store, with great expectation of its development. It included all the pictures of Zoe from 4-7 weeks (Iknow, I know, but give me a break, you just don’t have the unlimited means of unhindered photography with a 35-mm. I really have taken quite a few pictures but just not recently). In light of that, just imagine my horror when I got the pictures back and they are ruined – double-exposed pictures on every picture. At first I thought I could just get them to run the negatives through again, but when I checked the negatives, they were double-exposed as well. The only thing I can figure out is that when my well-meaning husband, bless his heart, brought me a package of film he just happened to find one day, one of the roles of film had already been used, and I blythely put it in my camera and used it. At first I was furious with the developers, and they equally thought it was their fault and gave me $26 worth of gift cards to their store [that's the only good thing that's come out of it]. Unless somehow it was their fault and some digital imagine got in there somehow. All in all, it’s a very sad story because I now have no pictures of my baby from 4-7 weeks. I was ready to throw my 35-mm out the window when that happened and order me a nice, new digital on the spot.
Not too long thereafter, beings that the nice, new digital wasn’t ordered, I gave my old trusty camera a chance to redeem itself and took a whole role in one afternoon. The Little Princess behaved beautifully and I was overjoyed to at last have some pictures before she turns any older…
Some of these seem just a bit grainy, but otherwise okay. And just for the record, these are not edited or digitally enhanced. Nope, these are exactly as the photographer took them [there's got to be some added eprops for that kind of quality in today's digital world].
And now, cheers to my two lovely sisters coming to grace the state of Georgia tomorrow!!! I get the tremendous privilege of picking them up at the airport tomorrow afternoon, and oh my, will we have a beautiful time! I was able to see my dearest Mumsie last weekend, and that was just splendid. So to see my family two weeks in a row is just… divine!
And sad tiding to my other sister who is not able to come… Our sisterhood won’t quite be complete this weekend. We will think of you fondly, dearest Jana.
