The lost art of photography

I love old cameras.  I collect old cameras.  It is a shame that film is becoming more scarce and obsolete.  I am just like the rest of you who have gone to the dark side of digital.  A few weeks ago I developed a roll of velvia film I had in my Yashica camera.  I recently finished up the roll at a friends baby's birthday party.  I haven't used the camera before that in maybe two years.  I got it cross processed and to my delight when I got it back were photos from a trip to Indonesia two years ago, photos from Australia and photos from a surf contest in Huntington Beach three years ago.  That is why I love film.  It isn't instant gratification, but it is PURE gratification.
