Last of the Kodachrome
One in the can, another in the camera with just two exposures left, then that's it.
Off to Dwayne's they go. But not the E4 you see - that was processed as a B&W negative here - not much of interest on it.
Many old timers shot their first color on Kodachrome. Certain people think that Velvia beat it, but I don't think so, because Kodachrome could produce vivid saturation AND excellent skin tones, and it lasts a long time too. This was shot in 1966 with my Yashica Penta J. Also, this is a good example of an artifact in blogger - when you click on this image, on many monitors the enlarged image has a different and much more saturated color profile - certainly different than the thumbnail. Try it and see.
