Remembering Kodachrome

The New York Times took note that Kodachrome film processing ends this week. There was only one U.S. processor still handling the film and they are shutting down. The last accepted rolls had to be at Dwayne’s Photo before noon today. Film manufacturing ended last year.

Taken from the bridge outside the main gate at the Subic Bay Naval Base, Olongapo City, Philippines. Looking upriver, sometime in 1980. Kodachrome 64. It was the only film I used.

Youth has no age.

  1. I haven't shot Kodachrome in 30 years, but I remember it well. The amazingly fine grain of Kodachome 25 was something to behold. You could make a billboard from those slides.
