Nobody uses it.  Everybody loves it.

Kodachrome is the stuff of dreams. It’s a day at the beach, that glorious prom dress, a backyard BBQ, the big-number-ending-in-zero birthday, all captured and lived over and over in slide shows we never tire of watching.

Kodachrome ~ the Queen of Film ~ gave us snapshots of our lives for years. A small family-owned business in Kansas, Dwayne Steinie’s Photo, used its meagre stash of Kodak chemicals to process the last roll of film on December 30, 2010.

 

There are no more yellow boxes.

No more cans of film.

Just a mother lode of memories.

Thanks, Kodak. ♥

  1. I remember when K-25 was discontinued, very sad; some of my *best* work was done with that film: https://astronomytopicoftheday.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/tse_11july91cabosl.jpg .

    Indeed, different times; sometimes memories are a blessing and a curse. Cherish the memory but try not to live in the past; its not as easy as it may seem. Try to use those memories to guide and inspire the current generation who can never experience those times. I would dare say they were better times in so many ways.

    Indeed! Thank you for the memories, Kodak!

  3. I love browsing through old photo albums…… a sad loss. I notice old record players at tag sales and a B&N book stores. Perhaps Kodak will come back (or maybe not)

  4. Just enjoyed a little dancing break while working at home this afternoon. Listening and grooving to this very kick ass song made me smile with the satisfaction of the youngster I long to be if only I will take the initiative to just let it be. Thanks for posting this. It brought a smile to my face and a snap to my fingers!
