Two Things From Uncle John

by on Jul.15, 2008, under The Rest

1) I’m an uncle again! My sister just had her second, a girl called Sarah. That’s her in the picture below. The first picture of over four hundred thousand. That will be taken today. And every day. I swear there are about three photographs of me under the age of four in existence. If you rifled through the photos of someone born in the last couple of years you’d have a flick-book animation of their entire life. Let-alone the videos.

    Digital camersa have changed the world …. and done little for the makers of photographic film. … nor the thrill of anticipation when waiting for the chemist to get the photos back.
