This is what I should be done with my Saturdays. Film. Cameras. Coffee.

I've got fujifilm 200 sensia slide film in the Zorkii and Kodak
Ektachrome 100 slide in the SuperSampler.

I'm regretting not having my Nikon for some other stuff.

Picture from Regular Sunday Coffee last week. I'm still figuring out how to cross process in Aperture. It doesn't look as good as what I can get in Photoshop yet. I may not be able to use a single application for my photos.

I have discovered what I hate most about manual cameras. The film roll. I took a a number of, I believe, fantastic photos today but I can't show them to you; they're just suspended in silver particles right now, you see. And I haven't finished the rolls so I can't develop them. Bah! I know there's at least ONE photo that is just great. Just really perfect.

Sigh. I should have brought my digital today.

I'm still not entirely certain why I love shooting film when it drives me nuts and why I dislike digital as much as I do. Maybe it's that I have to do all the processing after for digital. With film I drop a roll and get a suprise the next day.

Course, with film, =if I want to do anything bigger - like show anyone not in my immediate vicinity - I have to scan and process. Hmm... it's actually an extra step.

Bah! I say, bah! I need a Photo Monkey to do this work for me.
Bah!
