What do you do for Valentines Day?

Christmas and New Year’s are behind us and cold winter is ahead of us. The first relief is Valentines Day.  And yes guys, it is a conspiracy from the florists, jewelry stores, and greeting card companies.  But I gave up fighting it a long time ago.  Best to go with it and collect what ever bonus points we can.  We all know we are going to need all the points we can get, eventually.

So what do you like to do to celebrate the love of your life?  Ladies here is a chance to tell us what you like to do and what we can do to let you know how special you are.

Please use the comments below to tell your guy, and the rest of us, what you like to do on Valentines Day.

They took my Kodachrome away!!

The last place to have Kodachrome developed is no longer accepting any more film. Dwayne’s Photo Shop in Parsons Kansas developed the last roll on Dec. 30, 2010. Kodak no longer produces the chemicals so this is the end. See this article from KOAM TV in Kansas:

Full story from www.koamtv.com

Updated December 30, 2010 at 4:55 PM CST by ANGELA GREENWOOD: The end of the year brings the end of what many say is the best slide and movie film in history. The world’s last standing Kodachrome film developer is located in Parsons, Kansas, and on Thursday, they stopped taking the film. According to Dwayne’s Photo Shop in Parsons, most people have never heard of Kodachrome film. But the unique film is bringing attention to Parsons. Large crowds of people from across the region and the world came to Dwayne’s Photo Shop on Thursday to take advantage of the absolute last chance to have their now obsolete Kodachrome film developed.

I hope no one has any left over rolls you meant have developed because it’s too late now. I hope I don’t have any. I still have some print film to develop. I guess I better get it done. Everything I do now is digital but I still have my film cameras and one day I plan to shot some more film. I really do.

2010 Summit County Fair

My family has been spending the last week in july at our county fair since our kids started in 4H many years ago. They raised and showed rabbits and I still photograph the kids with their rabbits after the Friday night pot luck dinner.  This year I put them on the cover of a magazine:

In addition to photography, my wife and I also grow flowers and vegies which we sell at the Contryside Conservancy Farmer’s Market. It is held each week in the summer and fall at Howe Meadow in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Akron and Cleveland, Ohio. In the winter months it is once a month in the Happy Days Visitor’s Center. Here is a slide show from this year’s Winter Market:
