    always pleased to see younger ones

    I'm past 40, and sometimes feel that analog is just a middle age obsession to recapture the fun that I had with it in my youth.

    So it is always nice to see a member of the younger generation pick up anlaog vs just giving all of thier life over to sitting in front of a computer or cell phone 24/7.

    Of course I sit here at the laptop in front of the fireplace, on sa saturday night, with my wife playing LP's on the turntable from the 80's, so I am not the only one who remenbers past decades fondly.

    Glad to see you have found this place. Happy shooting, souping and printing, from one of the more congested conurbations in Canada.
