Subject: photos

I went out and got some 1000 ASA film and took some photos. I think they came out okay. You can tell me what you think. If you can make them look better, go ahead. I have the capability of adjusting things with my Photoshop Program but I find it difficult to judge just what to dim and how. I am however hooked on getting "good" photos and I'm going to get my SLR camera dusted off with new batteries along with some for the flash and a long cord.
