Yeah, I really dig your stuff.  There's really a lot of "life" in your pictures.  Hmm, I'm having a brainfart for a decent adjective.  But it's really good stuff.  Do you find that you take different types of pictures with analog vs. digital?  As you have fewer shots available on a roll of film, does it make you more selective of what you actually snap?

The analog stuff is much older - once I had the digital I pretty much entirely stopped with analog.  That's gonna change though.

Thanks flooz.  Dont' we all have them?  At least to some degree?   :-D

When you go back to film.. what type of film are you going to use? My favorite is probably Ilford FP4+. I actually recently bought some outdated bw400cn at Duane Reade for 1.67! and it was really nice.

Are you going to scan you're negs? If so, what are you going to use?

I'll probably scan the negs for web-ues w/ my mediocre-at-best Canoscan that has a transparency adapter.

As for film - I just bought a couple of rolls of Fuji Pro 160C as well as Kodak 160VC to see how the difference in saturation plays out.  As for B&W, depends on what I'm going for.  Ilford has some nice, smooth, full toned films these days  - probably the FP4 that you mention.  I've always been a fan of Kodak's T-Max films as well since I'm more comfortable developing them myself....not that I do that these days - but I still have some of my equipment - including an enlarger for 35mm.  Sold off the pair of Omega D's as well as a bunch of other things. 

I still have my Schneider lenses though.   They aren't going anywhere.
