In the gd old days photos were only taken during special occasions, either you would visit the studio in town or call the village photographer. For the likes of @ol monk and others who were born in the digital era this was how it used to be.
1. cameraman alikua anampanga vizuri sawasawa alafu anahesabu 1, 2, 3 na before aseme 3 mnasmile yenu yote msiharibu mbisha
2. cameras in those days had films of 12, 24 and 36 exposures so we had to wait for like 4 weeks before we saw our pics
3. Ulikua unapewa mbisha yako + negative, negative was for if you wanted another exposure of the same pic
4. the cameraman was very popular in the village, he used to dfhkm any skirt wearer that he fancied, alikua anawadanganya na flash
5. Once the mbishas were delivered zilikua zawekwa kwa album which was always kept under lock and key, tulikua tunaiona saa hile kuna mgeni peke yake.
6. ukikatia dame kitu yakwanza ulikua unaitisha ni mbisha na ile siku utapata unajua baaas, mkia pia utapewa

Ongezeni zingine lakini i leave you with this pics from those dem days

Kuna mmoja aliitwa birthday ya bro akatuenjoy na maflash. Kumbe jamaa hakuwa na film, and to think that he was paid by mom to go and develop them. Alikula hadi keki (I vividly remember his jaws working themselves up and down, savoring the sweetness. He was one of those with prominent jaws akikula ata kakitu small unaona jaws zikiroll all over)
His excuses for several months was eti bado hazijatoka...Mara sijui studio imefungwa..hekaya mob.

I still hate that man with a passion. His mere sight brings up all that bad feeling from my childhood.
