Film is not dead

……but how much longer will it last?

The end of August, marked the closing of one of the last professional photo labs on Oahu.  At this time, I was invited to have pizza with a friend.     The 3 of us sat around for a bit while the owner kept working on last minute orders till the very end.  Hawaii Pacific Photo has been around since 1995, offering a full lab for film processing and digital photo printing.  The times have changed where the mainstream no longer uses film in their cameras or bothers to make any prints since a majority of people just upload their image to some type of social media.

I was unsure of attending such an emotionally strong moment when I didn’t know really know the people that were closing a huge chapter of their life.  Even though it was painful to witness, I’m glad I got to be a part of it. I truly hope such a hard working man can land on his feet with new opportunity.   The options when working with film just decreased, but I will try to enjoy it as much as possible while it’s still out there.
