F is all about Floppy Disks and Film.
When "floppy disks" first went out, everybody was serious in using it. Then the jokes started. Gosh, I wish I could tell you all the jokes about "floppy disks," but I might get banned from Blogger. *laughs hysterically* (Somehow I felt weird laughing because I'm not sure everybody got the explicit-adult-joke-eyebrow-nudge I did.) Anyways, if some of you don't know what a "floppy disk" is, it's the bigger version of a flash drive (that's how I understand what it was). You save stuff in it. It looks square and flimsy. That's why the name floppy was used, I guess. (Can you guess I didn't do some research on this? *giggles*)
No, I seriously did research about it. "Floppy disk," or diskette, is a disk storage medium. It's thin and flexible, sealed in a rectangular plastic carrier lined with fabric that removes dust particles. It started at 8-inch (200mm) in size. Later on, it became 5.25in (133mm) and 3.5in. (90mm).
With the improvement of technology, storage became smaller with bigger capacity. Not sure if there are still floppy disks being used, but I'm sure I prefer my tiny USB flash drives.
How about you? Do you have a "floppy disk?" (Oh please, get your minds off the gutter. *laughs out loud*)
For years, I've used film when taking photos. My photography class in college enabled me to develop my own films in a dark room. I didn't like the smell of the chemicals at all. It was like working around vomit the whole day.
I know that there are still a lot of photographers who use film, especially the professional ones, but there are also more pros using digital nowadays. Digital is very convenient. No more numerous boxes of film to buy and store. Everything is in the cloud! Well, not literally, just saying.
Photos are now saved in SD cards. No more bulky film strips. No more days of waiting to develop photos. Point and shoot. Shoot and print. Print and display. Voila!
Technology. It makes lives easy. Don't you think so?
