I bought many a gear there. Sad to see it go. (I know this is old, but I don't visit this sub forum often)

It used to be every time I'd go to Yosemite I'd see goobs of large format cameras, mostly 4x5 with an occasional 8x10

no more . . . sad smiley

Now It's rare to see film at all.

( instead you see people with multiple thousand dollar equipment they don't know how to use )
