Photography God I love film!

It takes a while to get used to a film camera again after 6 years of shooting digital and digital only. Forget for a second how delicate film is—a blink of clumsiness—and it turns into a wreck in your hands. But then again. Even heavily damaged film has lots of character and style.

Is this the pathway to the tisanes' heaven or just a quiet dead end (2nd picture)?
Though serene and sylphlike, the herbs and light knitting seems to delusively pave a rusty barbed wire.

Thanks Kit, I was expecting these!
I was just discussing with an Italian friend a few weeks ago and he was just on the move back to a film-camera, irritated for "taking so much evidence instead taking photos".

By the way, the second one fits perfect with Tom Wait's "Time"

Kit:

There were so many reasons to switch back to film, Gupi, that it would take a very long post to go through a reasonable fraction of them. But it all boils down to this: shooting digital is like eating fast food—too cheap to treasure, too good to be true.

Alex Buga:

I love the bokeh on the first picture.
Where do you scan your negatives ? The light leaks come from a bad shutter ?

Kit:

I have a Nikon SUPER COOLSCAN 9000 ED film scanner for scanning my negatives. I'm really a Nikon devotee. :)

The light leaks come from accidentally opening the camera, Alex — the price I pay for getting back from digital cameras to the beauty of using a film camera again.
