Between a rock and a hard place


Here are a couple of shots from my latest Lomo roll. I've taken my films to the two photo developers that are in my neighbourhood, but there's a problem... One scratches the hell out of the negs and the other gives me washed out prints. Annoying!

  3. men fan! de här två bilderna är skitfina, särskilt nummer två. jag har himla tur med min fotobutik, de påstår sig vara den bästa i sverige och jag börjar tro dem.

  4. Åh, blev lite fotokär nu.
    Jag är svag för den här färgskalan, så mycket färg och ingen, liksom, som svartvitt med färg. Det tycker jag är vackert.

  5. I share your pain - I've been having the same problem in Chicago... I found a nice, cheap neighborhood place to process and scan my negs to disk, but they scratch them more often than not. So frustrating!

    (Love your blog, incidentally! It's one of my most read favorites.)

  6. at least you can still get them developped, in my local town there is almost nowhere left to develop film, even the Tesco's has stopped, i resorted to Boots but they said (after i had paid etc etc) that my photos would be back in 10 days!! whats happening to the world?! ;-D
