And the other lesson, which I'm sure Ted mean to mention but forgot -
probably because he's said it so often, to so many people, under so many
different circumstances - is that any time you set out to take photos
you want to get - whether for your own enjoyment or for pay, put a fresh
set of batteries in the camera before you walk out the door! (AND take
spares with you. ;-))

Good sir the lesson here has nothing to do with film test, exposure
nor quality of picture. But everything to do with a battery operated

Whether one leaves home and hearth or not, but shoots pictures anywhere,
should always have...... You guesed it............:-)


We have double sets of batteries for al M6-7's and R8's. Quite frankly
the first thing one buys as soon as the camera is purchased.... extra 

And wonder of wonders you'd not be posting an under exposed photograph
could well have been an interesting shot of the young lad. ;-)
