Yes, the final Hurrah for film photography from me. And I wanted to let film go out with a bang.
I took my final film camera, a trusty Canon AE-1 to Mauritius, with a dozen rolls of film, to see what could be done. And there was a lot to do. A lot to photograph and a lot to…. regret having brought a film camera.
Really, I had regrets as there were situations where a digital camera would clearly have been of more use. See I started to think logically. To question the whole film thing and it’s place in today’s world.
Clearly, I have come to the conclusion that film, for me, has had it’s use. That it has had it’s days and made me go forward with photography.
But now, new things will happen in my life and great change will be here soon and Film will be most impractical and cumbersome in the future.
No regrets, no going back this time. I will think warmly back to my film days and to the beautifully tactile cameras that go with it but my life will be taking a turn and I’ll look to the future.
….but more of that later!
