Those moments when you develop a film are amazing. I still remember them since I was a kid. And when this guy was taking out his film from rolls after processing it you can feel how wonderful it is.
Those moments are priceless. You spend whole the day developing films you brought from a trip, all those pictures taken months ago. And now they are ready and you can finally see them. You hold your breath and impassionately putting it against the light, trying to recognize familiar faces and scenes on those negatives.
And what now. You take a shot, look at the screen, say something like: "Blah!". And delete it.
I love digital photography and probably will never go back to the actual film. But I miss those days and especially those moments.
