I have found myself shooting more and more film for my personal photography 
of my family.  Shooting digital gets awful close to "work" having to 
download the photos, edit them then send them to be printed...with film I 
run into COSTCO, get them printed and put on a CD...I have prints and a CD 
for any digital files I may hard drives thank me.

I have set up my small enlarger in the upstairs bathroom and sometimes make 
B&W prints the old way even. It is not quite as much fun as I remember it 
being, but it is good to do occasionally. wrote:
