Well, had to get into this discussion since photography and flowers are two
of my greatest passions.  Kay - I should print off your post and let my
husband read it - he thinks I take a tad too many pictures.  Don't think I
take enough (I get too stingy to bracket the way I KNOW I should) but I do
have quite a few.
	how on earth do you have enough room in your freezer for all of your
slides?  I have a room full of slides - most in carousels, I will admit.  
	I also like Fuji film better than Kodak.  I do something even different,
however, I take print film then send it to Dale laboratories and they send
me back slides and my negatives - which I can then view the slides and have
prints made of which ones I want.
	I also have a pretty good relationship with the manager of the local
Wal-Mart one hour photo lab (was in college with his dad) and he will
usually WATCH when he is printing up my pictures.  I can always tell when
someone else does it, but they will cheerfuly re-print them for me if I
notice them not being right.
	If anyone would like to try Dale, I can send you an envelope to try or
give you their url or phone number.  I have been very happy with them.

Our azaleas are spectacular right now - photographed a bunch of them
