I recently found...  
...three completed undeveloped rolls of film in my hand carry when I started packing for my trip recently. :P Wonder what they're of? It couldn't be something too important because I haven't missed the photos. I'll probably see if I can take them in to be processed this week - it should be interesting to see what pictures they are. :)

Speaking of which, Mark nearly fell over when I told him that I was thinking of NOT taking my regular film camera to NYC with me this time. He and I have had constant debates - he's Mr. Technology after all - and I was always the traditional film person... Well, since playing around with my digital camera, I even shocked myself when the thought of NOT taking my SLR (it's so big and bulky after all!) to NY was even a consideration. We'll see if I've evolved from my primitive way of thinking enough to actually leave my SLR home next week. :)

And tonight my NYC plans hit a huge snag - one of the shows we were going to see ("Never Gonna Dance") is closing ONE DAY before the performance we bought tickets for! :P Seems like just my luck! :( So it left Mark & I show-less on Monday night (when most of the theatres are dark) so I bought tickets for us to see another showing of "Millie" :P. Kevin will think we're nuts - but really, I love the show and have seen it numerous times before he was even in the cast... Yeah, he'll believe that... :P

It's already February so my countdown to NYC is 10 days! :) I was excited about seeing Pat and spending time with her on my last trip, but this trip with Mark is really special - I love traveling with him, spending time with him, and seeing shows with him! I'm really looking forward to it! I just hope we don't get snowed in like we did last year! :P

hehe, I am just the same now ;)
It is soooooo relaxing to only carry a hand bag sized digital camera ....

My main consideration is how light my carry on would be without it! I love my SLR but it makes traveling a pain at times. :P My carry on is usually heavier than my suitcase with all my photo/video equipment. :P The digital is actually sounding better and better. :)

Hi hi Sheri! did Mark like that picture I made? Sheri I also have a little favor. I have this little thing I've started that my friend got me into. collecting shot glasses from states and other places. So far I only have 3. I was wondering if it was too much trouble to ask for a New York and or a hawaii one. I could get the money to pay you if you would like.
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 07:55 am (UTC)
Mark loved the photo! Thanks so much for making it again. :) And I can get a NY shot glass for you when I'm up there next weekend. :)

Canon s50 (digital, 5 Megapixel)

Wow - sweet camera! :) I'm not that advanced in my digital equipment yet. ;) But lighter and easier to carry is always nice, especially when traveling! Most of my uses for photos when I travel nowadays is to upload them to a web site anyway, so a digital fits my needs perfectly. I just have to cut the umbilical cord with my SLR. ;)

You were in the city last year too? We got snowed in and ended up staying an extra 4 days because of airport closures and cancelled flights. The extended vacation was nice, but our bosses weren't too happy! :P

Gosh, you guys are way too technical for me! my camera consists of a throw away one! lol! "Simple things for simple people! Well, I am glad that I am not the only one who has "mystery film" shall be interesting to see what is on it! You must post and let us know! Enjoy that trip to NY. I enjoy traveling with my hubby too! The weather in Feb can be iffy, I can remember it being below 0 and snowy and also it being really nice too! I shall be praying for nice warm weather! :)
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 08:04 am (UTC)
I'm curious to see what the pictures are because pictures from 3 rolls of film are hard to miss... They're probably mostly of Sydney. :) And Mark is my favorite travel partner! :) It's a shame he always gets so much travel stress whenever we go anywhere! :( And I'm hoping it's not as cold as it was when I went up there last year. :)

A couple of years ago I found a roll of undeveloped film. I took it in & it turned out to be pictures from when I was 18 and at basic training! :D

I didn't take my SLR to Hawaii and had total digital failure. But then, my camera wasn't brand new.
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 08:09 am (UTC)
Wow! Your photos were from your basic training days? It must've been fun to see them when they came back from the lab. :) Mine are probably mostly of Sydney (I'm guessing) and maybe a few of some random trip I took to LA last year (which is why it was probably in my travel bag) I'm interested to see them though. :)

And you're scaring me with your digital failure stories! :O But then again, I've also traveled before and had SLR failures too. At least now when I take pictures I can see the results and know whether or not I have to re-take them. ;)

ha ha... I was just like you..swore against ever going digital... ummm... been a year now, and am coming close to forgetting how to load film in a camera!!

But you know... digital still doesn't beat flipping through your old albums on a rainy day to reminise about good old times!

Luckily the price of printing the copies you like of the digital you took is coming down!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 08:12 am (UTC)
Haha! I swore up and down that I wouldn't go digital! :D But I'm so weak - not even one week into owning my first digital camera and I'm ready to sell my SLR up the river for this trip! Haha!

True enough about albums, which is one reason I've always been partial to film cameras. Scrapbooking is still a joy of mine (even if I haven't even put together Sydney's puppy album yet!) :P
Smithasmittenbyu on February 3rd, 2004 04:24 pm (UTC)
you are not weak! You are just changing with times! :) And you know with digital you can take a million pics without taking up physical space in your room!!

Lugging around 7 large albums (with average 300 pics each!) is sometimes no fun! although the contents are! :P

so how many times have you seen Millie? and I thought my Lord of the Rings-going was excessive! ;)
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 08:23 am (UTC)
Hehe...I hesitate to say for fear of sounding like a freak. ;) But after this NYC trip it will have been 10 times,.... BUT with several different casts AND over a two year period (I'm trying to sound less like a freak - but it's not working... :D) It's not a wonder that the songs and certain moments from the show pop into my head at odd times. ;)

How many times have you seen Lord of the Rings?
BOOM! goes the dynamite!mslauren2930 on February 4th, 2004 05:41 am (UTC)
actually, you're not really a freak, because if I had my way, I would have seen "Rent" at least that many times by now.

as for "Rings," well I've seen "Fellowship" and "Two Towers" the regular theatrical versions 8 times each in theaters, and "Return of the King" 5 times (but will see it 3 more times for the magic 8) and I also saw the extended versions of Fellowship and TTT as part of Trilogy Tuesday back-to-back. not that I'm a geek or anything.... ;)

all in good cause, I think....all in good cause...I mean Viggo...Orlando....one can never admire their "work" too many times, right? well, among other things....I've read the books and love them. I'm actually re-reading the trilogy and "The Hobbit" right now in reverse order. if you're a fan of the written word, I highly recommend reading Tolkien as he's a wonder with words. the only thing is it took me a little while to get into his stuff, but I'm not much of a reader anyway, so I think I had pre-existing issues, which I happily and thankfully overcame.

oh and one last thing....I got my car....I will be home over President's Day weekend....I guess I should take this to email, but I was going to get your itinerary, because it would be lovely to meet you even if for only a moment between showings of "Millie." let me know...
Sherishutterbug93 on February 4th, 2004 08:09 am (UTC)
Woo hoo about getting your car! :) Email me: shutterbug93@yahoo.com and we'll talk about possibly meeting up. :)

NO FUN!!!!!!!! You are going to be in NY when I was supposed to be. :-) But my trip had to get pushed back. *pouts* Have fun!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 08:55 pm (UTC)
Re: *LOL*
You were supposed to be there next weekend? Aww! I'm sorry your trip got pushed back. :( When are you going and will you be seeing any shows while you're there?
MoonRosemoonrosedreams on February 4th, 2004 08:31 am (UTC)
Re: *LOL*
Yeah I was supposed to be going from the 11th to the 17th but now it is pushed back to it looks like the 25th to March 2nd. And I am not sure what I will be seeinging while I am there. I am pretty much going to spend time with my bf and see some fam and friends while I am there but I know my bf wants to take me several places I just don't know where yet.

I bought Never Gonna Dance tix for the 16th too!! But we got them switched to the night of the 14th and ended up with better seats so yay. I'm seeing Gypsy on Monday since that's closing too!
Sherishutterbug93 on February 3rd, 2004 08:57 pm (UTC)
You were lucky you got to switch them. :) I had to ask for a refund - since my entire trip was filled with other shows. :( I really wished I could've seen Noah, though! :( I'm sad that it's closing.
Care: say what?careleswhisper on February 4th, 2004 12:43 am (UTC)
No regular camera???!!!??? Wow, I'm shocked. I like the old way of photography as well. :) Whatever you plan to take I'm sure the pictures will be awesome since you're so talented. :)
Sherishutterbug93 on February 4th, 2004 08:10 am (UTC)
I was pretty shocked too! :P I guess we'll have to see if I can part with my SLR for the trip, though. ;)
