One Note On Modern Photography

I closed out the summer with a rafting trip on the American river. I took one of these disposable jobs along and had three recurring thoughts:

  1. “Waitaminit, there’s no image preview?”
  2. “Waitaminit, there’s only 24 shots?”
  3. “Waitaminit, I’m supposed to wind this thing?”

How am I supposed to explain any of this to my children?

    OK, now we’re all wondering, “Waitaminit, where’s the 24 photos?”

    (The avid whitewater kayaker chimes in …)

    Stick your digital camera in a ziploc baggie and you’re all good. Now winding necessary. If you want to go for the big bucks, pony up $5 for an Aloksak (which I probably horribly misspelled). It is supposed to be nearly invisible for taking picture through but is much tougher than your standard baggie.
