Where would you go? What subjects would you document?

    Thanks for posting that Allan. As someone who was among the last to go digital, it brings back many happy memories.

      I’m with you, Mike. I am thinking about using a film scanner to make use of some of my blasts from the past.

    Loved watching this! It’s been decades since I’ve loaded a roll of film or spooled it onto the reel in a dark closet to put it in a canister before developing it but this sure did bring back memories! I went kicking and screaming into the digital age but haven’t looked back and I suspect my lungs are happier for it. Loved listening to him talk about his passion for photography and watching him take those last 36 images.

      Thanks for your comment. It awakens my memories of the “Dark Arts” of working with film. I look at that experience as wonderful training for the digital experience using apps instead of chemicals to produce an image.
