So, my ballooning photos have been stymied by the realization that BOTH the film developing labs in my neighborhood have closed in the past year. Is this due to the rise of digital cameras? Argh. I'd like to be a luddite and stick with my "real" camera for as long as I can...but if that means bowing to the subpar service of RiteAid or CVS, I might change my mind. The times I've used CVS they've lost rolls of film, overexposed, or corrupted the surface of the negative.
In cheerier news, Arthur Delaney--whose work I mentioned a few posts back--just won an award for his profiles of homeless people living in the DC area. Congrats Art!
Am I the only one who walks to work each morning, passes coffeeshops after coffeeshop, looks in at the people on their laptops, reading the paper, drafting on notepads, and thinks...who ARE you people? What would I have to do in order to spend my days doing that? Surely they're not ALL students. Or Guggenheim fellows.
