Kodachrome finally fades out. Last production run winds up its 74 year life.

Well it had to happen in this digital era but still sad that Kodak didn’t keep it going at least for us sentimentalists who grew up using the big K. I virtually shot kodachrome exclusively in my youthful travels and remember fond moments like been stuck the the darkest Amazon jungle with nothing but kodachrome 25!! oh yeah that’s going to work. But I must admit I still have all my slides and they still look great. If you feel like shooting some for old times sake you still can buy it from Dawynes photo lab and send it back to them for processing.

Even this low res scan shows those lovely warm kodachrome colours
