Emulsional rescue

When I was still taking pictures (or “taking still pictures,” if you prefer) on 35mm film, I swore by Seattle FilmWorks, which had a proprietary film formulation — turned out to be repurposed motion-picture film, in fact — that worked exceptionally well on my little Minolta, at the cost of having to send in every roll to the Pacific Northwest for processing. Still, SFW did good work, and they sent back a fresh roll with every one they processed.

SFW later mutated into PhotoWorks, which would digitize your photos for you and set them into an online library and/or send you back a CD with the files. The service was a tad pricey, but pretty darn convenient. They gave that up last year, though.

And now, I am told, I have two weeks to retrieve anything I may have left up there. I think I have all the discs, but I’ll have to take a look anyway, just in case.

    That headline is brilliant. Dawn Eden-esque, even.

    If I have seen further, it is only by standing on the shoulders of a Petite Powerhouse.
