I took a roll of Ilford XP2 Super into Morrisons at the weekend. Went to collect it an hour later and I just knew this exchange was going to happen..
-’Ah, Mr. Davies, we don’t do Black and White film’
-’Yes, I know, this is a colour process film so no problem..’
-’No, we’re not allowed, it mucks our machine up. And we can’t print black and white either’
-’Well, you did a black and white digital for me last week’
-’Well, we sholudn’t have..’
Anyway, I got more or less what I wanted, they’d processed the film, left the negs uncut and they gave me back the £6. I didn’t want prints anyway!
It seems the knowledge is drying up quicker than readily available film!
TIme to get that developing kit I think.
