I’ve been spotted

Barton’s Point Cafe, Minster on Sea, England. 2018

Originally I posted an image from the same film called ‘Cafe dog’ (below) but I don’t remember seeing this frame among the negatives. If I did I might of rejected it because my wife in the background and her pink coloured top at the back of the image. Looking again, I think this picture is now much better than the previous picture I posted, not only being the whole frame but with the three people in the image it leads diagonally to the dog.

Although this was shot on a previous roll of Kodak Pro Image film, it might be one of the last roll of colour film I shot. Ever since Kodak’s announcement of a 20% price increase on film I’m beginning to doubt whether or not the use of colour is sustainable. You only have to Google colour film prices. Last pack of 5 Pro Image I purchased was £26.00, now anywhere from £37 to £42 RRP. With current prices and the added development cost, which for me is working out at £13 to £14 per roll. Seems silly when I have a digital Leica M-P (Typ240) sitting at home.

On a side note, I also noticed the price of a bulk 30M roll of Fomapan 100 has gone up. I last paid £42, which works out at £2.10 per roll for twenty 36 exposure films. Now listed online between £58 to £60.
