Driving to and from work can sometimes provide little windows of opportunity for shooting in the countryside, though you are always dependent on interesting weather aligning with suitable parking. Chance also plays a part, in that the best camera in the world is always the one you have with you at the time, in this case a Zeiss Ikonta folding camera from the 1940s I'd picked up on eBay for £1.20.
As we move through the 21st century, film choice is gradually diminishing. Fuji stopped production of Neopan 400 in 120 format in 2010, and 35mm format in 2013.

Every technology needs a critical mass of users, and film has almost had its day.
