I don't remember ever seeing my mom hold a camera... much less take a picture. She also hates having her picture taken more than anything. IIRC, she will be 65 next may. So I got a phone call from her last week asking if I have "one of those manual cameras". Just to be sure I asked what she meant and she answers "those where you can change the objectives" Yes, mom I have one, why? Could I borrow it for a couple of days? We are going on a field trip in my photo class and I need one of those to take some pics. We will use b+w film and develop it ourselves later... :stun: :shock: :cheers: In short, I'm really proud of her and exited about this. I will take a look at her pics today... I hope they turn out alright to encourage her to go on.
