    Thanks Billy, but I really have no idea of what I'm doing...just havin' fun with pitchers...on the other hand...who knows...maybe some day...
    If I have any "eye" for it, it must come from what little I know about Bonsai composition &/or flower arrangement.

That is why I wanted to take a step back and shoot some real film again.

    I couldn't agree more Bart...on all points...
    I still have 6 rolls of color & a couple b&w in the fridge...& I'm pretty sure I could find my old Minolta 35mm body.

    Hmmmmmmmmm...you may have just planted some seeds...

    How do I project slides on this webpage? :D

    I still have my old Minolta X-570 camera...my first "grownup" purchase with money I saved working in high school. I shot mostly in slides back than and havw two binders full of the silly things. Now I use a Canon Eos Rebel Xsi, which I also really like except for a couple minor quirks. Here's a link to my flickr page, and a few select shots of random stuff I've taken over the years. You might already have seen the VX/offroading ones so I won't post those again.

    To start with is a much older camera I have. I shot one roll of film many years ago with it...it takes nice pics. And I believe it is still all in working order. I will have to take a better pic of the whole thing...the lens folds in to the body for carrying with a hinged door and bellows mechanism:

    Ok, well I have taken up too much space and too much of your time...just browse my flickr page for the rest if you like. Great idea for a thread! I am inspired to get out and shoot more. Got a little money for my b-day...thinking that the nice Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 lens might be a nice addition for taking even more pro-like shots.

    Though dogs are FAR & away more weather tolerant than reps...You STILL woulda been time & money ahead, if you'd-a bought a dog costume, made of real hair, for your rep...
