The other day I came across my old camera.
Unfortunately, I came across it during a fit of early spring cleaning, during which I was getting rid of anything I hadn't used in the past six months. The only exception to the rule was things that I hadn't used in the last six months but knew for a fact I would be using again soon (summer clothes, for example, fall into this category. Maternity clothes do not. FYI.)
I haven't used this camera in probably the last 8 years.
And it seems highly unlikely that I'll be using it again anytime soon.
I got this camera for Christmas during my freshman year of college. It came with me to London for Study Abroad in 1998. Together we went through 12 rolls of film in three months. It has held, quite literally, a lot of memories.
I waved it excitedly at everyone in the room. "Look! It's the camera I took to London!"
Chris said, "Throw it away." the big meanie
And Lexi said, "Cool! Does it have any pictures on it?"
I guess a roll of film is a hard concept to grasp for a person who spends all her time with a camera taking pictures like these:
