Photography & Stuff by Erin Hanson


My stuff. Their stuff. And nostalgic stuff. This is the blog of Erin Hanson -- Recovering Lazyholic.

r.i.p. kodachrome

Time can heal all, but time as we know also has a cruel downside, eroding, erasing, and evolving matter into extinction. This is a fact that I have not completely come to terms with; however as I age it will become harder to avoid.

Recently it was announced that Kodachrome, the brilliant film famous for rich colors and its durability (... and that Paul Simon song), is being discontinued. This can be added to a growing list of formats that can't seem to find a place in the ever growing digital world. Part of me understands, but the part that hates to say good-bye is saddened that one more piece of history is being relegated to the "obsolete" graveyard.
