But back to film! Have you ever stopped to think about how lucky you are to be around in the time of film? We tend to think that things we use every day have been around forever, but in reality? The first person in my family to have their photograph taken was my great-grandmother at age nine. It was a some-what family portrait of her with her sisters. When was your first photo? I'm guessing most of us had amassed numerous photos before our first birthday. And think of the memories preserved! Can you remember exactly what someone looked like 5, 10, 20 years ago? Film has let us remember all the things that once were, whether we were there personally to experience them or not.
