That's a question I am always asking myself. It's even worse with digital because it doesn't cost anything to merrily click away regardless. I do restrain myself these days and treat digital like I have a roll of film in the camera, but only because I am too lazy to scroll through hundreds of shots to find the one shot I'm pleased with. Even so, I often sigh and ask your question once I have downloaded them to the computer...
I began my serious working career as a film projectionist simply because I was madly in love with the moving image at the time. Those foreign black and white movies of the 1950's were my passion - Riffifi; The red Balloon; Virgin Spring (1960s); The Red Inn etc etc. All had a style and atmosphere that fascinated me. It carried on with me getting into photography and I have never looked back.
