You can get an equivalent battery now, but getting really good film processing can be hit or miss. I've got  old Minolta, Canon and Pentax 35mm stuff in a small collection, all working, but the developing hassle takes the fun out of it. I can scan 35mm negatives to digital if I can get to the negative stage.
A digital camera is a lot less hassle. These are taken with my Sony DSLR.

Wow.  Maybe I should've hung onto it a bit longer...till some capitalist figured out the battery solution!

My folks gave me the Yashika because I was taking Introductory Photography as an elective in college.  Unfortunately, we learned more about developing (black and white film) than we did about proper use of the camera and it's many settings.

My hands smelled like Kodak dektol solution for about 6 months.

I had a darkroom in the attic when I was in Boy Scouts. That worked out until spilled chemicals worked their magic on the ceiling in the hall. While my family was young I didn't have the time or money but when I retired one of the first things I got was a small digital camera. It gradually morphed into a much larger camera. Over the years I've accumulated some nice 35mm stuff really just because the engineering and craftsmanship fascinates me and I couldn't afford it when it was new.
I can't sit in front of a TV all day, I'd go really nuts. Along with my political agitation photography keeps my mind working. I also learn as much as I can about my subjects and their habits, I usually know where they're going to be and when.
I hunted and fished most of my life, can't do that anymore, but I can handle a camera. I've even got a tripod ballhead mounted on my mobility scooter.
My Sony DSLR will accept most of the old Minolta autofocus lenses, lots of affordable choices to be found. I'm set to cover everything from 27mm wide angle to 600mm telephoto.
My cataract surgery and lens implants worked out fine, almost 20/20 in both eyes. I've been going over my old efforts to clean up editing mistakes I made when I really couldn't see much. Cataracts sneak up on you, you might not even notice what you're missing. I was almost legally blind in my right eye but could still see little critters other people didn't notice. You learn to compensate but still miss a lot of detail.

In retrospect, I wish I had hung onto the lenses, so that they might be used on another camera.  

After failed attempts at acquiring drawing and painting skills, I gave photography a shot.  Finally, I am able to admit that I have absolutely no artistic ability, in any medium...so I am relegated to art appreciator, rather than artist.

Your pics are always stunning.

Same here.  Not a big TV watcher...although I often have the news on when I'm home, as sort of "background" while I'm bustling around.

But I'll admit that I do have a couple of guilty pleasures.  There is a show called Big Bang Theory that is a fun little escape when I need a chuckle.  And I have another favorite...one you might enjoy...called Duck Dynasty on A&E.  A southern family makes millions off of their duck call business...but maintains their backwoods lifestyle.  They eat what they catch and hunt...and appreciate life's simple pleasures.  But most importantly, the characters are hilarious.  It's a fun 30-minute distraction for me now and then.

In the fist episode I saw...the patriarch of the family went to his grandchild's elementary school on career day and demonstrated how to kill and clean a duck.  Great stuff.
