It was a sad day when the photo centre announced it was going to close its doors for ever. I travelled down to the seafront to gaze upon the entrance one last time. It was just a pity that I could not make it down here before the lock had been placed on them for the very last time.
I was clutching the very thing that had destroyed the business. My digital camera. Gone were the days of running to the shop with your undeveloped film. I can still remember the excitement of waiting to see just what you had taken that picture of, and, of course, whether it had turned out.
Life was so instant these days. I could not help but wish that we still have that spark of excitement when it came to photos.
With a tear in my eye, I took a photo of those closed doors.
