Long time no see

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.

- Henri Cartier Bresson


I was trying to explain to my son what these empty film canisters are.


Me: "In the older days, we need to have these in our cameras before we can take pictures..."


Son: "Oh.. are they batteries?" :)



I've decided to collect a set of photos of these film canisters. For just mere keepsake or not, I love how they look, especially in a set.


I hope they may bring back fond memories for you. Which one is your favorite?
