A mechanical camera!
Even though I've been chronicling the seasons in this town (because my M4-2 has remained inactive due to its need of a CLA), I still ponder why I use film, and where photography can go after digital. I do not think film will recover its preeminence, but then, it won't go away. Just like LPs, it will stay for a long time yet, because it happens to have that particular "hand-made" quality about it that digital lacks.
Let's all hang onto our film gear. Film isn't gone yet... and there's charm in graininess. Otherwise, how to explain that a print of Lee Friedlander's may sell for thousands of dollars in a Christie's auction? Subject matter (a young, nude Madonna?), or the fact that it's an artifact of the past?
