Developing pictures


Oh, my god! How long ago did we take these pictures?

Lately, I’ve been looking at a lot of pictures. Mainly so I can put some on my website and blog. My family in Mexico enjoys looking at them, too. However, I’m not much of a picture taker. And I’m even worse at taking the film in to get developed. I took this picture of my twins when they were one and then forgot to develop the film for what I thought was only a year or two. When I finally got these pictures back from the developer, my sons were already in kindergarten!

The problem with not immediately developing the film is that the pictures always looked rather yellow. My sons always looked yellowish in pictures. (I shall refrain from making off-color jokes here.) Of course, I don’t have a problem developing pictures I take with a digital camera because I love computers and I immediately upload the pictures to my computer. That’s why I love digital cameras. A lot less driving to get pictures developed. And, I also bought a printer that scans and prints photos, so I actually save time and money. So now I have all these pictures to sort through and figure out which ones to use on my website and which ones to share with my family in Mexico. Of course, I get sidetracked whenever I look at the pictures. I start reminiscing about the past and I forget what I had started out to do in the first place. Not that I’m complaining because that’s kind of fun.

I don't want to get out of the tub yet. My hands aren't wrinkled yet!

One thought on “Developing pictures

  1. I always thought that “Dos Hermanos” was a restaurant we used to go to in Water Tower Place. Now, from your picture, I see it’s a sauna spa.

    Since you love computers and you already have some old pictures in electronic form, the next step is learning some color correction. Adobe Photoshop Elements is a relatively inexpensive and effective enough way of doing it.
