It had been awhile since i’ve used film, so I brought one of my toy cameras along to a sunny day in the city. What I didn’t know, was that I would have a really hard time getting the film developed. All of the local drugstores removed their machines and some provided a service to send it out for developing, for a lot of $$ and a week turnaround! After finding out that a Costco nearby still had a machine, the lovely boyfriend did me a solid and dropped the film off. It was a great price, BUT I can’t go back there because we don’t have a Costco membership and we got away with it this one time. I know film has been dying out, but I feel like a fool for not realizing it was this bad & that one hour photo processing is no more! Very sad.
Anyway, I really love the vibrant colors produced by the film I used. Although some good shots came out blurry i’m happy with the results. Next time i’ll slow down more :) Here’s this past Saturday on film:
Drove to Queens to check out a bud’s new apartment then took the train into Manhattan.
Stopped by the Etsy x Dossier pop up shop / a pretty park
Brian took us out of the way to look at a beautifully designed menu, it was worth it / did a lot of shopping (more like looking!)
Little Italy festival around where we got falafel.
All taken with a Diana Mini & 35mm Lomography film (that I got on clearance whoop whoop!)
P.S– If anyone happens to know of a photo lab in the Long Island area that still develops 35mm film, send them my way.
