Of course I was just kidding - but I remember years ago going out after a new snowfall (didn't live in Tucson then!) I drove to a little park where there were some neat ice formations in a stream. Only way to get the camera where it had to be was to hang it under the tripod and lie down in the snow to focus. Really neat!
Got home feeling a little sniffly and wound up with a case of pneumonia. Couple of weeks later I headed for the darkroom - and sure enough had taken the empty holders.
Not sure I think of it as gambling though and yes, practice refines technique but there's always the human element and a sense of excitement and a fear of having done something stupid mixed in with the excitement.
And now I have to look for an app to help me to remember to use the app that helps me remember what I have in which holder.
I have actually come around to putting a little sticky dot on the holders after I load them and taking the dot off when I take the film out.
Now if I could only remember where I left my iPad (seriously!!!) Haven't seen it around here for a couple of weeks. Must have left it in an airport lounge in SOME city or other. If only I could remember which city I've been in lately.........
Is there an app for that? Maybe a magazine called Modern Dementia Praecox or something?????
