Just finished a great trip to Cape Cod with my oldest daughter. Many wonderful conversations about film and exposure and getting her comfortable using her “new” Rollei 35S. It was very interesting watching her tune into the light and it’s subtle changes and thinking about how it would look on film- she was much more engaged to the whole process than when I see her shoot with a digital camera. Yes I am very proud!

In the big yellow room
There was a camera
and a classic film
and a picture of Paul Simon jumping over the moon.
Goodnight slide show in the living room
Goodnight dynamic range eight stops more
Goodnight little Afghan girl’s haunting stare
Goodnight mail order
And goodnight to Steve McCurry whispering “hush”
Goodnight plastic carousel
Goodnight transparencies rare
Goodnight glorious old color film… everywhere.
