Brought a tear to my eye....
I was in Nashville today to shoot some street photography, and swung by Drury's to pick up some 120 film. I stood behind 3 girls, non of which could have been older than 22 at the counter. All 3 had stacks of boxes of Ilford Paper. 11x14, 8x10, 5x7, in WarmTone and regular. Along with bricks of 35mm Ilford film.
They let me go in front of them since I only had 6 rolls of Ilford to pay for. While outside I struck up a conversation about what format they were shooting, and printing in general.
I told them I was there shooting 120 today. One said she wasn't wild about 120. I kind of cocked my head, and asked why. It was just because she had been shooting with a holga. I told them to come around behind my ride. I whipped it out.
I mean, I whipped out my RB67 with my 180 on it, along with the suitcase that came with it, with other lenses, filters, prism finders, etc....
I popped open the Waist Level View Finder, and threw the strap around one of the girls neck. I thought she was going to pee her pants.. while looking at the images she was viewing.
It was just cool seeing the girls buying all this paper and film. One girls order was 300.00 and change.
There is life after digital
