Nice shot. I don't remember the last time I shot film. I still have my film camera, "just in case," but I'm not sure in case of what. Maybe I'll shoot slides again someday. Maybe.

i think it's partially the practicality -- i have about four unused rolls laying about and don't want them to go to waste -- and partially the idea that if i wanted something blown up, it would look better from a film camera. but of course i realize 1) what are the chances i'll capture That Perfect Shot on the 35mm and 2) that really might only vaguely make sense if i wanted it blown up to something ridiculous like 40 x 50.

so basically i still just like the tangibility of film. for whatever reason. something visceral, if you will. ;)

btw, clicky clicky on the lantern for the 35mm set.

I love my digital, but shooting film seems more "real" for some reason.

That does not look like a winter sky in Ohio! Nice shot.
