For as long as I can remember, I have loved to take pictures. I remember being so persistent with my mom in the Salvation Army one time, when I was about 8 or 9 – there was an old 35mm camera on the shelf for $2. I wanted it SO badly, and my mom, sensible woman that she was, tried in vain to talk me out of it. Nobody really puts a decent camera in the Salvation Army…but my persistence paid off and she bought it, just so she could go back to looking for new curtains in peace.
The next day she took me to The Trading Post in Hawley (now it’s The Trading Post & WhatKnots) and the lady behind the counter – was her name Margie? I know her husband was Harold – put new batteries in the camera for me and loaded the film. I eagerly used up the roll and mom took me back to The Trading Post to send the film out for developing. I had to wait several days! The pain!
Only to discover…the camera didn’t work. Gee. Mom tried to warn me…
Anyway, many years and several cameras later, I am totally in love with the digital age, especially as a real estate agent. How did real estate get anywhere without digital cameras? I wanted to share some of my favorite Lake Wallenpaupack photos with you. Enjoy!
