Back when my kids were young, cameras had film in them. You had to wait until you got a chance to take the film canister to have the film developed before you knew if you got a good picture or not. Sometimes the process would take a few days or a week.  It was really great when shops started processing film and having photos ready the same day!

Now with digital photography, you can preview your image as you take it!  Then you can instantly share it through the wonders of the internet. Amazing, huh?

This photo of my middle son is one of my cherished ones.  It was taken with a film camera. Luckily I scanned the photo at some point. The original has been damaged and the negative lost.  This son has autism. This is one of the rare photos when I captured him making eye contact. I love it!!  He was playing in the sand box with the toy trucks. His favorite was the bull dozer.  He had been waiting for a long time for his older brother to give him a chance to play, and he was just so thrilled when he got to sit with that truck.

Later this same day, he became a big brother himself as my third son was born that day. Lot's of memories in this one little photo!
