December 30th is the last day Kodachrome film will ever be processed on planet Earth. Dwayne’s Photo Studio is the only place where Kodachrome films are processed and just has enough chemicals for one more week of processing.
Kodak has stopped producing these unique chemicals that gave images the vibrant look seen in pictures of photography’s great like Steve McCurry (famous for the Afghan girl) and Eric Gutmann and others). This happened in 2009, but Dwayne’s Photo Studio still had chemicals to go for another year. Yet also their stock has come to an end.
I always feel a little sad when awesome things cease to exist.
