The neat thing about digital cameras is that you can instantly use the results; either for online posts, to email to friends, or to add yourself to some dated event to cover some tracks! I used to use film cameras but would never get around to actually developing the results, and I have at least one (maybe two) undeveloped rolls kicking around, which are probably ruined by now anyways. Bah, who cares, it’s all just stupid memories.
Last week I was sending out a package to a friend in London and figured I’d send him the pic that went along with his poem. Sure, I could have emailed it, but letters don’t have links. And it’s nice sometimes to have an actual print. I put the pic on an sd card and headed over to the CVS for a quick printout. They have 4 stations there and people are always printing up pics, I guess the technology has caught on. At 29 cents a picture it’s pretty cheap because I actually save money by not having to print up everything on my roll of film like back in the bad old days. But CVS could be saving some money if they weren’t so wasteful with their receipts: sorry for the bad pic but that collection of paper to print out one digital picture goes up to 32 inches! And it’d be more like 38 inchesÂ but I gave one part to the cashier. Pretty wasteful.
Maybe with the money they save by redesigning this paper trail for one picture they can finally unlock those condoms!
Oh, if you want to see the pic I printed, click ahead. No charge!
You thought I wrote poetry? Hell no! I outsource my creativity. It was a poem about doodles, but I forgot to write down a copy.
