So does this make analog photography more of a journey than the destination?
I think the journey can be important, for sure, but also feel that it's individual. I very much dislike developing film, for example, but love to print. In the end, though, it's all about the print, and that, to me, is the destination. So to me both the journey and the destination are important.
