We Are The Last Generation Whose Baby Photos Weren't Taken on Phones

Are there any places that still develop film? Are there still film cameras? Remember when moms and grandmothers used to carry "brag books" of photos in their purses to show off baby photos to their friends? Now thousands more photos of babies are taken at each and every stage of their development and life and recorded and shared via cellphone.

Modern technology literally put Kodak out of business. Think about it. Film sales, labs for developing, all businesses destroyed by modern tech and nothing to replace them. I question those who claim modern tech industry generates enough jobs to replaced those it has destroyed.

I only wish this had been around when we were kids. Do you know we do not have many photos of us as kids as my mum always cut our heads off in photos. We can tell who it is by bodies but no heads to show! What a waste of money. We used to have a photographer come to visit every year to take posed pictures which we all hated as we had to dress up in our best and have our hair neat and tidy. As soon as this torture was over we used to take off the clothes ruffle our hair and riot! LOL

Yes, there are still film cameras. Some of them are found in antique stores, but you can get disposable film cameras at places like Wal Mart. They also still do developing. I had to take pictures of the ruins of my home in February and to save a few dollars I bought a disposable camera and had the film developed at Wally World.

I think that there are still those kind of cameras but not many have them. Probably those who only like that kind of photo being taken. We never had any albums as such they all got put into a drawer and stayed there for ages.
