Fire pictures! [Dec. 28th, 2000|12:47 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
For people that keep asking what "spinning" is whenever I mention it, here are pictures from earlier this evening. I'm making some pretty stupid faces in a lot all of them.
Yeah, so the beach was nice and relaxing. I got a workout today ... running around with Cole and his friend Albert all over the beach. They went out on a inflatable boat up the river... I was supposed to watch them so I ran up beside the river and got up on a bridge going over the river, jumped down to the island below, and hopped on their boat... they then dropped me off on a log in the middle of the river where I stay for awhile before Cole came back and picked me up. Fun stuff.

yeah, so came home then nick and I went to GI Joes to get tickets... he tried to pay for them but they wouldn't take his credit card, so I put it on mine... that bitch owes me like $200 now. then dan came over while nick and I were making new wicks. nick's trying to learn to spin backwards ... he's making progress.

then we played some pool, then watched a bunch of TV, then they took off.

now I get to deal with a billion email messages and crap. maybe i'll put it off until tomorrow.

tomorrow night blythe shows up! then nick, blythe, me, garrett?, dan?, are going to the beach to hang out. yea' yea'.

exciting journal entry, huh?

Re:

well i used nice paper on MY printer, and it sorta looked like ass...so i was curious how much you need to spend on a printer to get photo-quality pics printed out...
...did i mention i want a digital camera too?

Dig. vs 35mm

Yeah, it is amazing what they can do these days. I work in a camera shop and have to set people up with the right stuff all the time. Digi photography IS cool in the sense that you get instantaneous viewing, etc...but it would only be a supplement for me. I'll never trade in my Minolta...I dunno, I just love being in the dark room and having that control and personal satisfaction of doing/having your own prints.

The 800si - ohhh yeah. The only function it lacks is basic human emotion. HAha.

Re: Dig. vs 35mm

I, too, appreciate the old stuff. nothing like chillin in the darkroom making prints.
i haven't used one in so long, i don't know of any darkroom i have access to at the UW :(

Re: Dig. vs 35mm

Make a friend in Haggett, Lander, or Terry Hall. I hear they have facilities. If I go to UW I will try to get into one of these...which is the coolest?

Re:

i use walmart hehe.... (although there are many many places that will accept jpg or tiff files from digital cameras)
but i think pretty much all the walmarts that have the one hour processing for photos also have a kodak machine that accepts CD's and floppys to print pics on photopaper (of course any photoprocessing place just about does it)
but i think that walmarts prices were the best last time i checked (about 6 bux per full sheet)

Re:

its not so bad to make prints yourself with. its one of those use it yourself machine and i can print 8x10's there.. i dont really print very often and its convienient.. i can go in print one and leave. on waiting so thats a bonus... there are places that are cheaper prolly (just surf online and youll find tons) but then u gotta wait :)

its a trade off ya know :-P
