“Will work for photos” Sometimes people drop of film or files to be printed and wind up not being able to afford to claim their work when it is ready. This is an age old photo lab problem, as it is hard to ask people to pre pay to develop or print photos. A “poor” customer came in today asking if he could trade work for his films that have been sitting here for 6 months. “Do you need any work done here.” Like what, yard work?? Years ago I could have had him wash the windows, but now I have just enough here for the people on the payroll. I guess when you are broke, hobby stuff like photography gets shut down, what a bummer. I really need this economy to wake up soon. I don’t think the barter system will pay my rent, though after work today I might see if I can “work for beer” at the bar around the corner.
