Everything old is new again.
Peter Allen (1944-1992)
Color film is too complex to be sustainable in a world of digital imaging, and as predicted in Color Film To Be Discontinued, the shift to black and white is continuing.
Ilford has announced that they are opening a new black and white lab in San Clemente, California. This lab will process all black and white films and will produce prints on Ilford black and white paper.
Please let me know if you have tried out this lab or have another black and white recommendation.
For more details see Ilford to open new black-and-white photo lab for film lovers and Ilford opens US lab to meet demand for black and white film development.
