i had several rolls of c-41 based B&W film XP2 to be developed
today, and i went to my usual Parkway Standard Photos lab to
have it developed i was told by the lady that it would take a week.
they closed down the processing machine in parkway. Five metres
away, the other shop said the same, they no longer do
processing of c41 films on location.

i felt the sky darken on this hot hot day, and
i trudged along Prinsep road
