To quote Don Konkey from the short lived TV show "Dirt", who said, "I use film because film doesn't lie".
As for me personally, I like film because I can see it, touch it, smell it, shoot even taste it if I want, and I know that properly stored, it will last a long, long time. My father who passed away over 13 years ago, when he was 90 years old, taught me that much, and I'm still looking at pictures both he and his father took. I was lucky enough to inherit both his, his fathers, and even my mothers negatives that I can still print and enjoy.
