|The last of my Kodachrome.|
Somehow I missed the boat. Around the time I was really getting in to photography, Kodak was in the process of discontinuing Kodachrome 25. A couple of years later 200 went away, and finally, last year 64 got canned. Even though I was shooting a lot of 35mm slides around that time, most of it was Velvia or Elite Chrome Extra Color (gag). There was also Sensia, Provia, and a few others (including my first two rolls of Kodachrome). Then came all the color negatives. I shot a lot Reala, some various Portras, Fuji Press, Fuji's portrait films, some Agfa, etc etc etc. By the time I finally figured out what films I preferred, I was working at a newspaper and shooting all digital. When I went back to film I was shooting medium format and larger and the majority black and white. I guess we were never meant to be Kodachrome.
