John Crane has many reasons for sticking with film during his career, but this is one of my favorites:

"I spend so much time in front of the computer that when the time comes to get away and enjoy photography – the last thing I want to do is pick up another computer."

That's a new one to me and I love it. His photos are wonderful too.

I've been dipping my toes back into analog photography for a year or two now. It's more than a nostalgia trip. Forcing your brain to think more about what you're shooting really helps.

And it's fun. Who says this can't be about fun? Unless you're a pro, fun is the only reason you ever need to justify using film.
