A less than fun memory: hearing the photo tech tell me how much I owed them while checking out at Penn Camera today. I ended up spending an absolutely insane and unsustainable amount of money to have everything developed and scanned. There's only one place in town that does film processing and even after I weaseled my way into be qualified as a student for a discount, it was still expensive. On the way home on the metro, miserably staring at my receipt and the film SLR in my lap, I came to the conclusion that I definitely can't afford to use film on my intern budget right now. On top of it all, these rolls definitely confirmed that my lens is soft and that I need to find a replacement.
... But who are we kidding really, I'm never going to stop using film. I just need to figure out how to make more money. Harvesting spare organs is out, but can't you sell plasma or something? Oh, the things artists do for their craft.
