Offboard Memory

Do you remember when taking a photo meant that before you could see your picture, you had to finish the roll, then take your film to the drug store, then wait a few days, then go back to the drug store and give them money, and then you got to see your pictures?  I sure do.  Now that photography is so cheap & easy, I use it just to remember stuff…
Don’t forget to write those checks…
