Saying goodbye to KODACHROME

Kodak announces that they are cancelling the Kodachrome line after 74 years. I don't know if I have anything shot on Kodachrome that is easily accessible to me right now, but if you follow this link it has a nice write up with videos and slideshows from some of the famous photographers who have used the film. The "Afghan Girl" National Geographic cover is one of the most iconic photos shot with this film.

A Tribute to KODACHROME: A Photography Icon

It's kind of sad when they start limiting the different types of film stock. The easiest place to get film is Wal Mart or Walgreens and they only carry like one type of film for color and one for Black and White. Even a few short years ago the photo aisle at Wal Mart was full of different films for different types of uses.
