Here in town we're quite a bit more civilized and treat our yard opossums as pets. I'm expected to
feed ours on the porch along with the cats. We don't eat them. Rather, it is software geeks that have overpopulated the area and are classified as vermin.
Opossums are just Irish possums.
I just got 5 8x10" Ilfochrome prints from Lab-Ciba in Burbank, CA and I'm ecstatic!
These prints were from a 4x5" shot on EPP and the prints look like the slide. It's an exciting thing to hold these prints in my hand.
I recommend anyone to send Frank Green an email and get any special slides of yours preserved in Ilfochrome. The picture I had printed was a group shot to commeorate a special moment for my close friends, and so everyone's getting a copy. That comes to about $40 for a print with unrivalaed beauty and longevity.
Frank will make a mask if necessary for $5 and return it with your slide as well. All told, getting Ilfochrome prints is just as easy as sending your film out to be processed. Do it before it's no longer an option!
I say all this on my own volition and simply to share my positive experience with an Ilfochrome lab.
Just got a personal call from Frank Green of the Lab (Lab-Ciba) to make sure I received the prints and everything was good, plus a little personal talk relating to the photo I sent in.
That's amazing customer service and in fact it exceeds that; it's just being good to your fellow man (or woman). Can't recommend him highly enough.
