Made it to the loop today and gosh was it fun to visit Central Camera. For those from not around here, Central is Chicago's oldest camera store (since 1899). The place was hopping. I had excellent service, tons of selection, and what was most special to me was a group of students walked in, some with analog cameras/some with something else, and all were shooting the breeze, with the sales folks, talking whatnot (lenses, film, storage, prints, whatever)....was real happy to just wait my turn in line, bought a bunch a film. I believe they have their own house brand of photopaper, anyone use it before?

Some shots of the shop for those who have not had the chance to make the trip.
