"The photo was made with my Nikon S2 with 50mm lens. On January 12, 2006, The day Nikon announced that they were effectively abandoning film cameras.

"I have gradually learned from colleagues across North America that I was by no means alone in getting out that day with my oldest film Nikon. It was a symbolic thing. Something ya gotta do! The camera, 'retired with honor' for a year or so, came back from Pete Smith (The master Nikonsmith in Florida) earlier this year, restored, good for another fifty years, and is back in daily service."
