Pretty!

Thanks, Annie.  This was from my old smart phone.  I don't know why, but clicking on the pic will make it slightly bigger and clearer.  At least it does on my computer anyway.

Nice, @FISH.  I see a lot of toothpicks for Jaws out there.

Here is a pic of some seabirds from my photo archives.  In fact, this photo was taken with an old Kodak Instamatic and it was the very last picture that the camera ever took because it broke right after I took the shot.  Still, I was able to get the film developed.  That shaded area was caused by the camera's last gasp.  It added a somewhat interesting effect to the picture, don't you think?

@juan what do you think? I like this photo. "The DEATH of the Instamatic."
I took my Pentax K series camera to a shop. The film would not load. The fellow told me that my camera is dead. :'( In my neighborhood, a local shop has open. Taking photos with film is back in style.
I now have 2 lens from the K series.

No more sea birds for you @anniem .
Unless you go back to New Gretna, NJ.
We go crabbing in the local salt marshes.

@FISH @Rikki Gins - like both the photo and the story.  Sometimes we are blessed with favorable unintended. 
K1000 cameras are fairly plentiful.  Your camera store might hunt one up for you.  The only trouble I’ve seen with them as they age is the gasket that deadens the mirror travel when it raises to take the picture sometimes gets old and sticky.  Sometimes the mirror sticks in the up position.

@juan to buy another camera or not? I am back to reading about cameras, again.  :'(
My new neighbor is a wedding photographer. He no longer uses film. He shut down his dark room. Everything is digital.
I have become so lazy. I used to make fun of people who used their phone as a camera. Now, I have joined the club.

Nice photo @FISH.  I used to have an old box shaped camera that held a roll of film.  You had to hold it down and look through the top of it to take a picture.  Took a little practice, but I did go through some rolls of film.  Sent the exposed rolls to a place that would develop them.  This was long before those 24 hour photo places started to crop up in the shopping malls.

Be careful on your future walks, @FISH .  Rumors are Deshaun Watson is headed to the Eagles.
