    Central Camera in "Country Living"

    My wife noticed an interesting page in her most recent Country Living magazine and drew it to my attention.

    It is a one page feature on page 114 of the February 2013 issue.

    It features Central Camera in Chicago.

    I've attached a scan - with some reservations, given issues of copyright.

    It makes me think that the photographic information I'm likely to find interesting and relevant is less and less likely to be found in the locations where I used to find it.

    "...anachronistic supplies like lenses ..."

    It seems optical technology passed me by, big time, and I didn't even notice.

    I go there every time I'm in Chicago. They've given up on selling modern cameras, but have a great selection of old ones. They've been in business since something like 1895. Last time I was there I bought several 120 rolls of ISO 3200 film, so I could shoot my Voigtlander Bessa down in the subways.

    Didn't you hear?

    The new digital light rays can't be imaged by older analog glass lenses. Nobody uses analog light anymore. Where have you been hiding??

    You are welcome

    My wife tells me that this is the sort of thing the magazine does regularly - a short feature on a remarkable small business.

    I agree it is great to see a camera store like that.

    Central is a gem and something I cherish! Anyone comes to the city be sure to check it out. Vivian Maier was a Central customer!

    Does your wife work for the magazine? How does she have the February 2013 issue... Is she a time traveler?
