I'm certainly not a hipster--there's no way I'd ever get a tattoo. I still associate them with carnies and ex-cons. However, I have been having fun the past two years using old box cameras. I often do hear, "Can you still get film for that?" I always reply, "No, but I keep using it anyway." Last night I was out with a large Gundlach Korona 5x7 camera taking some photos in a nearby park. I had several people come up and start talking to me about it. They were just interested is all. I've found that when I use one of my classic cameras such as a Leica, Rolleiflex, or Bessa folder it's easier for me to get people to pose for me than when it is when I use my modern Nikon. I find the spirit behind Lomography pretty interesting, actually.
