    Unless of course the "good night" you are going into is in a darkroom!

    Another Dylan Thomas fan! I loosely paraphrased him in another thread - seems appropriate for those who support traditional photo methods ( and other worthy but posssibly losing causes).

    After some consideration I have come to the conclusion that pointing out some of the pitfalls of electronic imaging can be helpful to some who are at present ambivalent as to their personal direction on photography.

    There is no need to deride the technology, as this is the cutting edge of a brand new art form. A while back (read: way back) I needed to decide what form my own creativity should take. Water color, oil, line, sculpture, photography which? I studied the aspects of each as they applied to me, personally. The cheapest was water color (acrylic et c.) and many of my friends were doing it including the Mate. But I needed to have an outlet for chemical, mechanical, and electronic interests. Traditional photography was the obvious choice. Today it could as well be digital, but I hate what Im doing right now siting before a crt pounding a keyboard. I also treat my cameras like a tool. I keep them in operation, use them, and put them away. Id like to do that with my computer too. However I need to keep upgrading hardware, software, and there seems to always require some sort of personal interface I cannot just hang it up like a hammer and get it out whenever needed then hang it back when finished.

    And I never worry about getting a virus in my cameras or film.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.

    Very eloquent, very personal, full of common sense and for me one of the best posts in the long running analogue v digital debate. Thank you dr bob

    Dr bob,
    Very well said.

    mrcallow - I've got about 20 or so rolls of different 120 transparency film in my freezer - Ektachrome 64; 100 and some Fuji Velvia. It's been there for quite a while (10 years or so) so I am not sure how good it is. For $10.00 & cost of shipping, it's yours. Frees up some space for more B&W 120 and 4x5 film.
    Either e-mail me or send a PM.

    I do! I've had an ant colony appear inside a TLR, and I've lost an unfair number of lenses, slides, and negatives to fungus.
