It feels like a conspiracy. Whatever could be of use for traditional photography is being antiquated. I need to order some more chemicals.
I'm ordering some more chemicals also. Chemicals are just chemicals. An image setter or most digital devices are rendered useless if there's no software to drive the device. How many of us have digital devices that were obsoleted because there wasn't a software update for it? In the analog realm, there's no such thing. That's why I love analog photography. It will be the same 50 years from now. It's my hope that there will be analog photography practitioners in 50 years. It does look hopeful.
