It's friggin' magic, isn't it?

When you pull that reel out of the fixer and see frames, end to end, inverted highlights of emulsion in slight relief. Thirty-six different slices of time, pared so fine from life. One thousandth, five hundredths, one sixtieth of a second.

They're there, they're real, tangible. You can hold them. Don't get that with digital.

That's a fantastic description.... and I love how strongly I identify with that... feeling/appeal/satisfaction/addiction.
