so unfortunately I've found that the labs in Raleigh are just trash. I sent my film this time to a lab in Georgia (keep it local ese), but to economize with shipping it I had to build up a bit of a backlog. I mailed 9 rolls down there. Processing was $200. I think for the quality I might just send it back to Portland. Citizens and Pro Photo are both better. That or I'll retire or start with home-processing (RIP the blog in that case, most likely) Anyhow, that's why the long delay. You can't imagine how hard it is to finish a roll these days.
We played some badminton for Thanksgiving. My whole clan came to NC. It was great. Then now I just read about Clyde Common on the internet and I'm homesick all over again.
