It took me a while to find a local film processor – all of the local drug stores send their film out now! I’m pretty impressed with the test roll – no light leaks, good heavy negatives, nice saturation, sharp at f/5.6-f/8, softening up at f/2.8, and depth of field – I’d missed depth of field shooting with a digital camera all this time!

I've used http://www.yorkphoto.com since 2004 for 35mm photo development; their prices were dirt cheap back then ($1.99/roll for prints plus $1.10 shipping) but what kept me coming back was their prints on line - medium format scans (1600x1000) posted on line. I have an on line album of a couple of dozen of rolls going back 8 years on their site.

They've stopped offering prints on line, but will include the same scans on CD for $3/roll. That, plus their processing increasing to $3.75/roll seems a bit pricey for their one-hour lab quality photos.

Does anyone have experience with mail order development? Anyone you'd like to recommend?

http://www.thedarkroom.com looks interesting - $10/roll scan only, they're in California (as am I) and 4.5 mb images. Doesn't specify the resolution, but they're bound to be higher than the scans from York, which range from 150K to 500K in size.

Maybe I need to get a film scanner and get my negatives developed locally.

Oh, and here's a picture. :)

Still Life (Lobby). LOMO LC-A, Lucky 100 film.

With so many cameraphone apps that mimic toy cameras, cheap cameras, old cameras, expired and distressed film, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Just keeping track of how many combinations of Hipstamatic lens, flash and film settings requires a litany of web pages to keep track of them!

…Or, you can pick up a LOMO LC-A, whatever film you have on hand, and get the same experience.

Wabi-Sabi (侘寂?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete"

LOMO LC-A+, Generic 200 ISO film.I love the look of well-worn, aged metal. Each dent, ding, mark and scrape can tell a story.
