Cleaning out the camera

Sometimes I think having a digital camera is a waste for somebody like me. I rarely think to take it with me, when I do think to take it with me I rarely think to take pictures, when I do take pictures I rarely think to retrieve them for use, and when I do retrieve them I rarely think to use them or show them to anybody.

For example — I took these back in July. One is my ticket for the advance screening of The Dark Knight (taken because I assumed, correctly, that they wouldn’t let me keep it)

Or some of the characters I ran into at said screening:

Perhaps a bit more timely while the movie was still in the top 10 — but no matter. I have pre-ordered the DVD; I’ve also pre-ordered the Blu-Ray. (I may even get to see it one more time in IMAX yet.) This is significant because I do not yet have a Blu-Ray player or a TV which would make the Blu-Ray experience truly worthwhile. That said, the Blu-Ray is supposed to simulate what they did with the IMAX experience — basically the aspect ratio will change as appropriate. That sounds really freakin’ cool, so hopefully prices come down a bit between now and Christmas. We’ll see. (I wonder how that will work for widescreen tvs.)

I have some photos from this weekend which I hope to post within the next couple of days rather than the next couple of years. One can hope.
