Yesterday, I needed to order a hole punch in a specific size and shape, and the only place I could find it was Amazon. Of course, I can never see fit to buy only what I need on Amazon and not take advantage of their free shipping, so I went on a quest to find something else that I "needed," when I stumbled upon a delightfully cheap Holga.
I remember when Holgas were expensive, usually upwards of $150. What happened? I've wanted one of these cameras for many years, so I added it to my cart immediately.
Excited about the idea of a film camera, I rushed home to find all that film that I know is just somewhere in my apartment. Turns out, I could only find one roll, which was probably a decade old, that was sitting in a cheap waterproof point and shoot I bought and had never used. With a renewed vigor and lust for film, I quickly shot the whole role and dashed off to Walgreens.
Turns out, I love the look of ten-year-old film.
I have a question for fellow film-lovers. Where do you get your rolls processed? The only place remotely near me is Walgreens, and they don't have many options for prints or scans. Are there any places in Portland that you folks would recommend? What about online processors? I'm curious to see how other folks deal with the impending death of one of my favorite media.
Ta ta for now!
