I hate to admit I still like taking a roll of film and sending it back to Kodak, getting photos back and putting them in an album.  I look at those not the hundreds on my cell phone.  And last thing I want to do is make my own prints at Walmart or the pharmacy.

Anyone else admit to liking prepaid mailers and film

I'm with you! I use the "The Darkroom" for my send out color processing and my favorite color film is Kodak Portra. For black and white I'll shoot just about anything for fun and develop it in my bathroom. I still shoot lots of digital but film remains a special experience.

I have an ancient Soviet built 35MM SLR mentioned in illustration of russian razorblades once. I have my Bulova 23 jewel automatic and a Waterman fountainpen.
Another Soviet made Shaska Cossack sabre is my sole surviving weapon and there is a modest, but to me beautifull Hammadan survivor from that pursuit. I still
don't know what a bluetooth is, guessed it came from owning a blackberry. I wish somehow we could roll back parts of our technical progress, roll forward social justice and record it in hardback books on acid free paper.
I didn't realise you could still get film and processing!

Fotomats used to be "the place" for me to develop my 35mm film.  Just drive up, drop off, and pick up later at my own convenience.  Went to the drugstores a lot too.  Never did the mail-in thing, but yeah, I miss true hard-copy photos.

I miss good ol 35mm. I've got about 20 rolls I still need to get developed. I miss how Convenient it was to just drop them off. Now if you drop it off it has to be sent off. I just don't trust it. Would hate to lose the pics but if I don't get them developed then what's it matter. :/

Freddie I have sent many rolls to "The Darkroom" with excellent results. Fair price with scans on a disc. I bet you have some memories in those negatives!

Vinyl is very hot, lol

Everything old is new again,

Wide lapels, narrow lapels, wide ties, narrow ties, pleated pants, flat front

All goes in and out.

The one style I thought would never come back is the crew cut.  Yuck, couldn't have been more wrong

I still like these comics.


No, I don't really like Archie and the gang, but this thread should not have died.
