In the back of my closet is a padded leather case containing my precious 35-mm film camera and lenses. I thought the investment in these things would last me forever. Now, however, that leather case is cracking, and the camera goes unused. Meanwhile, in a desk drawer lies a careless jumble of digital cameras, including the most recently purchased one. I feel no special affinity for them??they just come and go, and rather quickly at that.
