Analogue photographers have to try harder than our erstwhile contemporary digi-toting tramps. Digi is the new rage. We have to innovate and go out there and show the quality of analogue and how much more superior it is in terms of longevity, purity and bespoke value.

Jnanian makes a good point about one's fallability as time goes on: my eyes are not as good as they once were and focusing is a chore (but never insurmountable) and I have to look long and hard at detail on the lightbox with a loupé and magnifier alternately. None of this worries digi people with cameras that focus themselves and record everything for them. But I'm happy with my lot and will remain so!
