I don’t often ever add commentary to my daily photo posts but this one is a little special.

It’s my photographic keystone.

It was a photograph I took towards the end of my “return to film” roll of film: Fuji Superia X-TRA 400 in a small, cheap, plastic Vivitar wide clone made by SuperHeadz. The camera is no larger or more expensive than the price of a six-pack of Coke in New York or London. The film (purchase, processing and scanning), cost me less than half of that.

It inspired me to begin the journey that’s led to you this page. It’s a reminder that top-tier equipment doesn’t always outperform the simplest and cheapest.

Thanks for the reminder @silentcar.
