Usually I forget to take my camera when we go places, or else I forget to take photos while I'm there. My DH is much better at this than I am. On this last trip though, he brought along an old 35mm camera that we dug out of a closet. He shot a whole roll of film that we are going to develop to see if the camera still works.
Who would have thought that "film" would become something rarely used except by "real" photographers that want to have more control over their photos? That's one of the things about our everyday world that has changed very quickly. I guess that getting older, one naturally starts noticing these things. How many of us have old typewriters in a closet? You hate the idea of throwing them out, but you can't even give them away at a garage sale. They are too big, take up too much room and not many people even want to use them anymore. We still have a beautiful electric typewriter that my MIL gave to my husband for his birthday when we were first married. I know that it cost her a lot of money, so psychologically, we can't throw it away. It sits, gathering dust.
I also have an old 1930's typewriter that I used to type up all my college papers. It's lovely--truly a beautiful object. But I don't even know if I could find ribbons for it anymore. Yet I can't get rid of it. Sigh.
