I think good things last when people show they care, but you often don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. When the one truism of photography, film or otherwise, is "shoot first, think later" it pays to get used to casualties. I'm actually surprised it lasted as long as it did.

I started in 2008/9 with film and regret not shooting a roll during the brief window that I could. I had a one track mind with Velvia 50 at the time...
