Too Much To Ask?

Disappointment, frustration, and nagging self doubt- the volatile mixture that always surfaces whenever I develop a roll of film, and there ain't one, not one, single, good image to be found anywhere... A lot of almosts, a few "close, but no cigars," and a couple of "if only's." And sometimes, not even that. You feel cheap, your life empty, and your chosen avocation, one serious joke.

I need a vacation...

Or a digital camera. They don't make you a better photographer but they do increase the odds of getting something....

One day I may make the jump into the 21st century, like when the learning curve and cost of printing your own gets significantly easier and cheaper (uh-huh). Or they make less fugly, plasticky looking cameras- why does such a tiny sensor/mirror combo need such an enormous body like a 7D or a D300? Or when I finish doing all the other things I'd much rather do with the money I don't have.

Otherwise, although I can clearly see how digital helps in nailing exposure precisely, I don't see how it would actually help me see any better...
