I know that some photographers are anti-digital cameras…but I write this entry as someone who takes pictures for fun and memories.
For Vibes, I opted not to take the digital camera…in case it got misplaced. So, while at Family Dollar in Davis Square (man, I love that place), I saw that they were selling 2 Fujifilm disposable cameras for $8. Can’t beat that. (I also got this really cute decorative cat, some Powerade for Matt, and Little Debbie snack cakes)
Yesterday after work, I took a stroll down to West Newton Square to go to the CVS to drop off the two rolls of film I took over the weekend. It’s generally really cheap to get photos developed at drug stores…many do free doubles and stuff like that. Although I wouldn’t really know, because I’ve been using digital cameras for about 3 years now…
Anyway, alas, the West Newton CVS is undergoing some major renovations and it didn’t look like the photo center was functional, so I went to the photo developing place on Washington Street. I figured it would be more expensive, especially because I wanted doubles, but whatever…I needed to get the pictures developed. And all in all, I’d prefer to give an independently owned store my patronage as opposed to CVS.
After work today, I stolled up to West Newton Square to pick up my pictures. $27.00. I don’t know what the going rate is for developing photos, but as I looked through the pictures I thought, “Man, out of nearly 60 photos, the amount I would have chosen to actually print is probably 10.” And now, I don’t even have those photos on my computer, so I can’t post the pictures on here like I originally wanted to, unless I can find access to a scanner.
I suddenly don’t even know what to do with these photos! All of my photos for the past few years are on computers and CDs!
So for me, digital cameras are the best. It cost me $35 to get these pictures developed, but if I used my digital camera, it would have cost me less than $10 to print the good pictures…and I’d be able to share them with you fine people. :-)
Oh, and Sweet Tomatoes smelled so good…I was sitting right near there while looking through my pictures, and the aromas tantilized me….Filed under Greater Boston (General), Uncategorized | Comments (2)
