Today is the last day for processing Kodachrome. Hopefully you slide people didn't forget to send in your rolls!


I have to admit that I got a chuckle out of this part of the article.

In the span of minutes this week, two such visitors arrived. The first was a railroad worker who had driven from Arkansas to pick up 1,580 rolls of film that he had just paid $15,798 to develop. The second was an artist who had driven directly here after flying from London to Wichita, Kan., on her first trip to the United States to turn in three rolls of film and shoot five more before the processing deadline.

The artist, Aliceson Carter, 42, was incredulous as she watched the railroad worker, Jim DeNike, 53, loading a dozen boxes that contained nearly 50,000 slides into his old maroon Pontiac. He explained that every picture inside was of railroad trains and that he had borrowed money from his father’s retirement account to pay for developing them.

“That’s crazy to me,” Ms. Carter said. Then she snapped a picture of Mr. DeNike on one of her last rolls.

I wound up with 2 rolls of K25 and three rolls of K64 unshot.

Now this could get interesting. You see, in Canada Kodachrome was sold "Processing Pre-Paid" by Kodak. So I have a couple of rolls in the freezer where Kodak has already received the payment for processing. Isn't that a contract? Wonder what happens if I present it for processing? Do I get my money (processing fee) back? Not that I'm going to do it, but interesting legal point.

I shot K64 right up to the end, finishing off my last 7 rolls in New Orleans this past Tuesday and overnighting them up to Dwayne's, joining the 500 plus other FedEx shipments coming in to them on the 30th. I shot 37 rolls, altogether, in the month of December, completing a wonderful journey with the iconic film that started for me in January 1994 at Eddy Gual's show in Miami. The film may be gone, but my memories will certainly live on. Not just of the planes I took, but the photographers that I've stood alongside shooting them.

It's been a colorful ride that now will go on with either E100G or Provia 100F, depending on your choice.

it's too bad they're stopping it, I still have a few rolls sitting around that could use some developing.
