We have many young people coming in to our store for darkroom stuff.  Not 
just the usual high school students getting paper and film, but young people 
teens through thirties who tell us that while Adobe PhotoShop is great, it's 
just 
another program where you sit at your puter and click -- they love the 
hands-on craft and art of darkroom.  Some of the hardcore darkroom renaissance 
kids 
are the "Goth" types who are so hardcore they reject computers!!  Warms the 
heart!  I think the comparisons to ham radio are excellent.   We too can 
embrace 
photography through all technologies and approaches, old and new.
