Nobody gives this kind of activity a second thought these days...

so why is it that every time I pull out a camera, I get at least one, usually several people standing around staring at me and asking dumb stuff like,

"What kinda camera is that?"
"can you still get film for that?"
"how many mega pixels is that?"
"Is that black and white?"

and the one I really dislike....

"Why would you use that?"

Why can't people just leave me the F&%^$ alone and let me photograph stuff like all the iPhone wielding people?
and your answers are: better than yours; no, I just like carrying it around; it measures pixels in terabytes, and no, just black.

then i show them my M4 or speed graphic or nikon f2 and say "My (fill in the blank) could crush your iPhone/digitalthingy and photograph the remains."
