How much you spend for a year to develop films or purchase films? Film, is art, is beautiful, is sexy. I used to use film to take pictures, of course it is a good hobby. Whereas, I considered as a hardcore analogue user, I spent a lot of money on film purchasing or film development. Undoubtedly, I do not have any savings in the bank account, because I can't let my film cameras hungry for a second. It might considered as a bad hobby. Yes! I'm poor.

Today, I had a fun chat with my LOMO buddy , we were chatting about how much we spent for a year on films/ film cameras. It is uncountable. We do enjoy the feeling of using film to capture the precious moment. The feeling and outcome are priceless. My LOMO buddy said, he thinks he is so happy when he shoot photo by film, but he is broke because of his hobby.

I have a bad hobby, because I like to spend money, not shopping or gambling but film purchasing and film development.

Indeed, I am poor, but i do enjoy my analogue photos getting more, at the same time my savings getting lesser. Yes, I am extremely poor on financial management.

Would you like us to spend most of the savings on this “HOBBY” ?
