Remember the Fotomat?

 
*****
You could find these kiosks in the parking lots of your favorite shopping centers.
You drove by, dropped off your film, and you could drive by the next day and pick them up.
Film was developed elsewhere.
*****
The Fotomat has gone the way of Kodachrome film...no more.

I remember those! My mom and dad used them all the time.

Though I don't remember these kiosks, I do remember film days. And how some photos were better than the ones we take now...

Happy New Year!

I do remember them, for sure. But I never used them. Most of the time I developed my own film and printed my own pictures. Took forever!

I'm still shooting some film, but I send it out to be processed!
