A Relic

R is taking a photography course at school, and they learn all about photography from the ground up.  The last quarter they built and used a pinhole camera.  This quarter they're learning how to use a SLR.  This is old school.  No flash, no automatic settings and actual film that they will later learn how to develop themselves.  Towards the end of the year, they will learn on a DSLR.

I wish we had a photography course when I was in school.  Of course, we'd only get as far as learning how to use a SLR....
