At last, content as king. No flashy novelty or gadgets... simply photography doing it's matchless best... trapping time.

An excellent post. All shot on film, the soul in these images oozes out. What will today's photography look like in 50+ years from now? Pretty soulless?
You've gotta love progress in technology.
