I scanned a few more photos. I have a LOT of photos of people from my youth that I am not scanning because I had this really crummy set of cameras as a kid. My first camera was a Kodak 110, you remember those? With film cartridges that looked like a little phone headset? I had one of those until high school, when I ended up with a Kodak disk camera.
Both of these little things were great for portability, but the film quality sucked. They were very grainy, plus the lens was cheap, and the paper I got to print on was usually a "satin finish," which made it ever so bumpy. I can't work with most of these pictures: the come out dark or washed out. And back then, you didn't know the shot looked bad, you had to find out when you got it developed.
Thank God for digital.
