The classics

I finally got my manual typewriter and I love it. In our rush to progress, we have thrown away some pretty cool stuff and typewriters and record players is just two of the classics that we never should have discarded. Today I developed my first black and white 35mm film, 24 exposures and ended up with 7 fairly decent shots and two excellent shots in my opinion. I really don't know what happened to all of the other exposures. At one point, the back of my camera opened so, that probably destroyed all of the other pictures. Some how all of these classic technologies make life more interesting, more magical because you are forced to be more engaged because, like my cannon FTb camera, there is very little that is automatic about them.
