Just after I'd fairly well mastered the basics of photography, I used to load up a 24 exposure roll of film and go out and shoot the whole roll; simply for the joy of taking pictures and using a camera. It was a luxury I would indulge in, being as I didn't have a whole lot of money to spend on photography, so I was careful to try and make every shot count. I won't say those rolls produced any artistic shots or great photography, but I did have a lot of fun and enjoyment during that period. Thinking back to that period, it seems like forever since I've experienced that feeling of "just shooting for shooting's sake." And now in this digital age, we're not limited to 24 exposures and can shoot as many pictures as we want. But, I miss those days of the "24 Frame Mindset." Today, I took my digital camera outside into my yard and tried to recreate that feeling by shooting 24 exposures as if it were one roll of film. These are all those photos that comprised my 24 exposure "roll of film." I don't claim them to be great art or anything, but it sure was fun.
Some old wood in the back that had an interesting pattern.
