Old Kodak plus-x film

I do not remember where I found this film. I just remember putting it up on a shelf years ago. It's an unused roll of Kodak plus-x film. It's all metal. The only thing that reads on the film: Made in Rochester, NY and it's from an Eastman Kodak company.

I love old cameras. Any old (vintage, antique, etc) camera is displayed in my living room. Yesterday, I was photographing a sample of a coffee table book (great custom product for my clients). I thought it would be a great project for me to photograph my old camera equipment. I still love film cameras. I was sad to read in our local newspaper that Kodachrome is fading away because of the digital age.

Tag, I'm it

I've been 'blog tagged' by another photographer . Culprit: Kristi Eckrich of PA. I'm glad I did, because it gave me a chance to see her wonderful photography.

1) Link the person who tagged you.
2) Mention the rules on your blog
.3) Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4) Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them & leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they have been tagged.

6 Quirks about myself....

1. I don't like my food to touch on my plate.
2. I don't like driving. I was forced by my husband to get my drivers license when I was 25 yrs old. He was graduating from college, so I had to drive myself. Within 2 years, my car was in 2 accidents. One, at college... I wasn't in the car. Second time, a 8 year old back into my car. He was trying to start the car for his mom.

3. I can take naps anywhere (in a closet, head on my desk, sitting on the floor, etc). I can also fall asleep in less than a minute. My daughter is the same way!
4. It took me 7 years to finish college, full time! I couldn't figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I loved going to school and children. Duh... so I received my degree in early childhood education. Yes, I am officially certified to teach Pre-K to 6th grade in the state of Texas. However, I still love to learn.
5. If my body is moving faster than my walking, I don't like it. I get terrified of amusement rides, even riding a bicycle. I'm not a thrill seeker.
6. My right ear sticks out. It's missing some cartilage so it's bigger than the other side. I only realized it 2 years ago.

Now I need to tag some other people

The Alamo... sort of

This was done by my 10 yr old. I love children's creativity.

Morning motto

My morning motto, "Don't talk to me until I am done with my coffee."

The kitten and the pigeon

Peck, the pigeon, and Duncan, the kitten, are becoming friends. Duncan, the kitten, is still afraid of the pigeon. He finds out every time what happens to him when he sticks his nose near the bird cage, he gets pecked.
Peck still loves to come out of her cage and walks in the living room. She loves belly rubs. Yes, this is the pigeon I'm talking about.
