Why did I ever sell this camera?

Navigating this site:

When you click on any of the small images, a second window will open up with a larger image, and information about the photo. When you are through looking at the second window, if you close the window (click on the box at the upper left) this page will still be there. This saves having to reload this index page each time you come back from one of the larger images.

disposable camera
I like to play around with disposible cameras. I reload them after use. I also modify panoramic models to take full frame pictures. (Normally, panoramics only expose a 12 mm high strip down the middle of the frame, instead of the full 24 mm height of a standard 35 mm frame. This seems like a silly waste of film to me. In addition, I adapt them to take 24 exposure rolls, rather than the usual 12.
