Just a point of contention, it's Kodachrome slides, not prints. Also should note that Dwyane's didn't go out of business, they were just the last to stop processing Kodachrome. They still do E6, C41, etc. Anyway, this makes me a little sad. So much history shot on Kodachrome, the Zapruder film, raising the flag on Iwo Jima, all those Depression-era color shots. Ce la vie! Da habe ich einen groben Schnitzer gemacht. Die Kunst ist lang, das Leben kurz!

Forgive me for going off-topic:

When I think back on all the crap I've learned in high school
It's a wonder I can think at all
Though my lack of education hasn't hurt me much
I can read the writings on the walls

Chorus:
Kodachrome, they give us those nice bright colours
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera, I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
Brought 'em all together for one night
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination
Everything looks worse in black and white

chorus

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away, mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome, mama don't take my Kodachrome
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome and leave your boy so far from home
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome, whew whew, mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Shadow detail you just can't get out of anything but the most obscenely expensive digital backs...

Sad to see it go.

And keep in mind that this photo was taken in 1939. Awesome.

Not Kodachrome specifically, but color photos from the 1930s would have been on Kodachrome.

Wow. Those are some great pictures. It's amazing how much more relevant they seem by being in color.

So, what is it about those pictures that looks so awesome? Is it the color? Is it the perspective? What is it?

The shadows, the depth, the color, it all looks very "real"
