Bye, Bye...Old Camera's Magic

I finally decided to say goodbye to my long-term faithful friend, who supported me all through the years, starting with the photography class in 1998...So many beautiful moments I shared with him. So many moments I captured with him... And now it's time to say goodbye and face the realities of the new technology - the digital technology of a camera...And that's really, really sad...

That's HIM - my 13-year old camera...




I'm talking about my Nikon, the old fashioned one - not a digital one...The camera that required spending many hours in a dark room, developing and re-developing and re-touching black and white the old fashioned way. Yes, I've done it. And my friend - my Nikon - has been always there for me, even on my first trips abroad. Here's some I selected to share with you:
