I was introduced to the marvelous world of film photography when I was a little girl. Once my elder brother Jim bought Polaroid camera. It was in the middle of the 1980s. I was really amazed and fascinated by the effect of instant shots. Several seconds and here we are! It was some kind of miracle for me to get a picture then and there. Later I realized the trick and found out nothing special about it… but for short while.

I believe the most fascinating and the most meaningful news / blog and forum posts are that about scientific discoveries, no matter if they are big or not. Here is a few pieces of news I find pretty interesting:

1.Not So Sweet Tomatoes.

Using genetics scientists discovered why natural tomatoes from your arm are always sweeter than those you buy in a supermarket.
