Snapping Again

Posted 06-02-2010 at 10:41 AM by brianL

Back in the early '80s, photography was my main hobby,including developing and printing. Black and white mostly, because monochrome prints were said to last longer than colour. After two or three years I lost interest in it. But now I've moved into the 21st century, and got round to buying a digital camera, a Sony DSC H55. A compact with quite a lot of features (must RTFM soon!).
I gave it a bit of a test run, using one of the easy "point & shoot" modes in the local cemetery. I used to walk a friend's dog round there a while ago, and came across an interesting grave. Someone killed during the American Civil War. Is he buried there, or only commemorated? It would have cost quite a bit of money and trouble to bring a body back here.

    You'd have to know what business the family was in. may have been possible for seamen.
    I have two SLRs. One automatic and the other manual. Both use "gel" film. Monochrome always looks nicer. Some other models, such as the 720/120 types, had film with the reddish-brown tint. It's a shame that everything is going digital.

    Yeah, I had a SLR in my "gel" film days, but decided against a DSLR, because I didn't want all that carrying a bag full of lenses, and "shall I use a fixed focal length lens or a zoom" stuff again. That's progress, isn't it? Not always a good thing, but inevitable.
