I have had some B&W 400 ISO film laying around the house for awhile, staring at me, exposed and undeveloped. And when I say awhile, I mean awhile. Like this-is-embarrassing-get-it-out-of-my-sight long time. I wasn't sure what the pictures were from, and I kind of wanted to just TOSS IT as to avoid the whole "do I get it developed and then what.. get a darkroom? scan it? " thing. I kind of suspected it might be from when we went to Cambodia 2004 so I never threw it out. We brought our 2 megapixel camera when we went to Cambodia and those pictures are shit, because it was a 2 megapixel point and shoot. My color photos from my film camera turned out like shit, because I never learned to take great color photos with film in school and also because I had a commercial lab do the prints. But I suspected that I took some B&W, and I thought this roll might be it. Last week I found a place in the city that still develops B&W film, and will also scan it. Jackpot! pictures of Angkor what that can actually-gasp-be printed on 8x10 paper and not look like ca-ca. yeah! I am so excited!!

Hi everyone! been real busy here and haven't had time to post much. so... to get you up to speed... We went to Ed and Ineke's for an after work BBQ and saw stars when the sun went down. In San Francisco. for those of you not living in SF, this is a rare occurrence because of the fog. We dubbed this day "best. monday. ever". We went to a very nice beach BBQ for Isaac's co-worker Malia, who moved to NY. It was beach. It was fire. It was nice.
Then we went camping in El Dorado State forest, near Tahoe, over memorial day weekend with a bunch of friends. more on that later, when I have time to look through those photos...
