Since quite a few years ago I have wished for a local lab, but then we got ponies and the rest (my photography, quite literally) is history. Sigh. But this year (as evidenced by the actual bloody photos I’ve been able to post recently) I finally got to send stuff off to Photoghost. And, although technically they’ve been up and running for a few years, it is only this year when they’ve got their E6 and black and white 120 services in place. I have absolutely no complaints about the quality of the service, or the price really - there are cheaper options, but not hugely cheaper options and it is nice to use a local service.
I have four rolls I can send them next year (which is next to knack all as far as they are concerned) - I hope other people are better placed to keep film alive than I am.
