I finally upgraded my WordPress installation and the site survived intact. There was a little glitch with the categories but I worked it out. I still have some minor issues to solve concerning thumbnail images and my archive pages but it’s not urgent. It’s not like there are 10,000 visitors on my site earnestly sifting through my content. Right now I’m pretty thankful about that:)
I have a whole bunch of black and white shots from a roll of film that I’ll have to scan. Since my leisure time is scarce I’m not sure when that’s going to happen, but there are some cool images that will be worth the effort.
The other big news is that I finally bit the bullet and replaced the battery in my digital camera. Film is expensive and money is getting tighter by the day. As a result, I shoot less and I’ve also noticed that I’m overly picky about the shots I take and so I don’t take enough family photos. I’ve also realized that when I only shoot 4 or 5 frames at time, it might be 6 months and as many events before I process the entire roll. Therefore, the shots from the first half of the roll are already dated. I miss being able to post photos instantly after an event takes place.
There are many pros and cons to both film and digital, and while I will always love shooting film, right now my circumstances require that I opt for the convenience and affordability of digital.
