I rekindled an old love affair yesterday and I very possibly may never be able to go back.

I just dusted off my EOS 1N to do a Wedding and I have to say that it was like being reunited with an old, dear, long lost friend. The camera felt so good and so familiar in my hands and to a photographer there is nothing on this earth that can top the ker-thunk of a film shutter plus the fact that on Monday afternoon I will be picking up rolls of printed, finished, perfectly balanced images.

I just may have to retire my digital body to rekindle my relationship with an old, dear, long lost friend. Some things are better left unchanged.

It will be a long overdue, refreshing change to be once again exposing for the image and the film instead of everything being about the computer. Digital is not the answer to everything that everyone seems to think it is. In many ways digital has only served to complicate out lives. it will be nice to know once again that when I make an image it will be properly exposed, balanced, corrected, and sharp. No more long nights of histograms, curves, unsharp mask, and the rest of the circus that digital is. Just me and the film and my subject.

This morning I was looking at a vintage Leica M3 and lenses and a set of Heiland Pentax H2 cameras and lenses, all in pristine working condition, (Note to G1 members: no, they're not for sale so please don't start a bidding war) that I got when my Father and Grandfather died and I think I will get reacquainted with them as well.

Ah, the good old days. The best things in life never die, they just get pushed aside by new toys but they always make their way back sooner or later. Can I get a halleluah brothers??

Nuff said!
