Enjoyed a brisk spring day at Thanksgiving Point's own Tulip Festival!
Not all 250,000 bulbs had bloomed, but we didn't mind.
We ate kettle corn.
And ran off-path through the gardens. I LOVED having Ty all to myself, and I think Bella did, too. It was a nice break fo' sho'. The Brooksby cousin reunion in Provo following the Tulip Festival proved equally fun and entertaining!!
My digital camera lens that I brought decided to break upon arrival. Heavy sigh.
But luckily I brought along an old Nikon 35mm film camera that my Grandpa Buddy gave me long ago...Where did I get the film, you ask?
I dumpster-dove in my neighbor's trash this morning. Yeah, you heard me.
And guess what I found? 5-year expired 35mm film, still in the shrink wrap! It was a 7 pack, too!
I was planning on stopping by Walgreens on the way out to pick up some film, so I feel like that was a lucky snag...or dive...or something. I'm not encouraging dumpster diving, bytheway. It's a neighbor AND a friend, who I plan to inform about the film's quality. Be cautious if your neighbor has a gun and doesn't like your yappy dog. lol.
800 speed film makes it look pretty grainy, but hey - it was free! And not to mention, much better than no pictures at all!
I called my grandpa to get some pointers on using all the cranks, knobs and numbers, and it was really helpful to pick his professional-camera-man brain! Thanks Grandpa Buddy for helping me out today!
And thank you Raquel, my neighbor, who puts great junk in her garbage!
Cheers to a great day!
