Capturing the Moment

I remember my mom's camera from my childhood, circa 1984.   Compared to today's version it seems archaic.   It had a flash bulb that needed to be replaced and the film was dropped off at a photo stand in the middle of a parking lot.  We'd wait a few days and retrieve our pictures.  Although it was exciting to pick up our photos, it was always a letdown. Half of the shots were barely visible, and if we were lucky, there would be one maybe, two decent photos.   

They say cameras have come a long way since then, but based on the pictures below, I am not so sure.    

And, I'd bet you almost anything that mom still has that camera.
