    The reference to the Easter egg hunt was because of what looked like a poor turnout for a football game.

    Nah, that was about 1 1/2hrs before kick-off. It was a sell-out with almost all seats filled. Tons of Browns and Sooner fans in attendance.

    Nice. I used to love to shoot film, and especially loved B&W. I had an AE-1 and an AT-1 back in the day. I don't even know what happened to them. They actually might still be around here somewhere, hiding deep in a closet.

    I've still got an AE-1...…….been years since I've used it. Used to develop all my own B&W film --- Tri-X Pan, if I remember correctly.

    In my film days, I had three different brands. My first was an Asahi Pentax Spotmatic (Asian version of the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic). Then I acquired a Minolta XG-1 from my mother and then a Canon T-50 from my sister. The Canon T-50 had the automatic film advance.

    I never really did black and white as I was generally just getting pictures of beautiful scenery instead of trying to be "artistic." I taught a short class on photography in our church for the youth. One of those young men kind of adhered to the philosophy that B&W was the "only" way to go. So, I showed them a picture in black and white of a boat moored at a dock. After he agreed that the photo looked pretty good, I then showed the class the same photo in color. The color rendition was the one that provided the impact by them seeing that the boat was on fire.

    I still do pretty much only color and for the same reasons. The following is the only image I have that I took and made into a B&W. The wife's oldest sister asked me to get a photo of a saddle that her dad owned along with his dress hat as a tribute to him after his death. That saddle and hat are shown below in both color and B&W.

    Prior to him passing, my father-in-law gave me the saddle. It was the one that I used when we were on the farm/ranch. It currently resides in the house of a niece, as I don't have room for it in our RV.

    A journalism/photography professor I had in college told us 'If you can shoot good B&W, you can shoot anything.' And, I believe in that philosophy. If you can compose really good B&W, color is a breeze. Depending on subject matter, some photos are much more striking in B&W; others, in color.
