Hello Darkroom My Old Friend - Film Photography Pin
Hello Darkroom my old friend,
Film is once again a trend,
But dev and scan fees have left me weeping,
And I hear film prices are creeping
Upwards - but a way to ease the pain
Within the space of the darkroom
Need to get back in the zone
Learn to process on my own
Replace my blown-out enlarger lamp
Hope my paper isn't fogged or damp
Do I recall - how to get the film on the reel
Just by feel?
And touch the tools, of the darkroom
And in the orange light I saw
My print and I was filled with awe
Now I've well and truly caught the bug
But just as I was feeling oh so smug
I find that I am writing cheques - and spending even more
To fund, my darkroom
- Sroyon Mukherjee 🙌🏼
An iconic song - paid homage by this pin, a lovely addition to any camera strap, bag, or photowalk jacket!
Size: 30mm (1.18 inches) across

The Analogue WonderLab
When you’ve shot your roll of film and are looking to get it developed and scanned, then look no further than the Analogue WonderLab!
We can process your film for you, scan it at the resolution you need, and email back the files quickly and securely.
We offer FREE tracked shipping to our lab so that you can send us your negatives with total peace of mind. And our lab team are all passionate film shooters themselves, so you know that your film will get the best possible treatment!
Head to the WonderLab page here to read more details, or add the bundled developing above when you purchase your film.
Please note that our long-term aim is to offer developing for every film that we sell, but this is a work-in-progress. For full details and FAQs please head here
How Does the Bundled Developing Work?
To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.
Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)
When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!
So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.
We send all parcels via TRACKED service - free in the UK for orders of film over £50.
This means that when you buy your film from us you will be emailed a tracking link at dispatch, and will be able to follow your parcel’s journey all the way to safe arrival.
Please note that it is not a signed service so you won’t need to be at home to receive your film, and our letterbox-friendly boxes fit through the vast majority of European letterboxes!
You will have different shipping options and costs at checkout, depending on how quickly you need your film. Please refer to the Delivery Details page for full information
