And it was gone
I decided I wanted to have a roll of 35mm C-41 developed same day.
I went to the 1 hour photo section of the local chain drugstore that I had used over the last decade.
It was gone.
They only handled prints.
I got on Google and found all of the stores in that chain in a 25 miles radius.
They now only shipped film out and wouldn't return your negatives.
I was sad.
It was the end of an era.
Mail order is available and affordable.
But for how long.
It isn't like the death of a friend or a relative.
I mourn it nonetheless.
Time to start processing film at home.
