Film is back

Just the other day as I am walking into Wal-mart to 1. pick up pictures I ordered and uploaded online and 2. drop off a roll of film; I notice the large group of people using the digital centres to upload their photos and have them printed off.
SO many people are using these and wasting halfs of hours standing in line and then waiting several halfs of hours to upload the pictures into the Wal-mart system. (One of these USED to be me; one of these is my mother)
Does anyone even realise the joy of uploading these photos AT HOME while sitting on the couch or even cooking supper? It's true, you can do it. Just go to http://www.walmartphotocentre.ca.
I have been doing it for awhile now. The pictures are ready in LESS than an hour and still cheap.

Another thing I've noticed is the lack of film-users amongst the population. I dropped off my film and it was ready within 15 minutes. I remember the days when the photomachines (film) would be so busy it would take longer than an hour. Sure, some can argue and probably persuade many to believe that film is a waste of money to develop. Okay...not at waste of money; it just costs more. But, 'photographers' now-adays do not even know how much better film is compared to digital. Uh, it pains me to think about it.

While I'm on the topic of new-age photographers, let me remind everyone that you are not a photographer if you buy a SLR camera and edit it. I'll admit even I don't know much about the history of photography, HOWEVER I do know a thing or two about how to use a camera and the functions of each part of a camera.
Photography is the ability to USE the camera and it's features to the best of it's capability in order to produce the BEST QUALITY photo.

Don't call yourself a photographer. please

Harvest

"The Harvest"
Summer days have come and gone,
and the nights are drawing in.
From tomorrow, all about,
the harvest will begin.
But while the men sit honing reaping-hooks,
casting young girls keener looks,
one will wait alone,
for her lover to be known.
From dawn to dusk the people
toil the harvest has begun.
As it has for generations,
so it will be done.
But while the women talk about the day,
the children all too tired to play,
one will wait alone,
for her lover to be known.
Soon the fires will be burning brightly
all across the land,
while the courting couples stroll
the lanes. In Wonderland.
But when the crops have all been gathered in
and the icy winds have yet to begin,
one will wait alone,
for her lover to be known.
Summer days have come and gone,
and the nights are drawing in.
From tomorrow, all about,
the harvest will begin,
but while the grapes hang heavy on the vine,
and they're choosing the girls to tread the wine,
one will wait alone,
for her lover to be known.
