Mama Don't Take My Kodachrome

I recently heard that Kodak is retiring Kodachrome film this year.

WOW.

And even though I haven't used film myself for over 5 years, it's still kind of like losing an old friend ya know?

So in honor of my old buddy Chromie, I dug out my very first Double Exposure from 1983 when I was about 13 years old.
OMG it's horrible! I had wrapped black sheets around my pets in hopes of creating a floating head effect. Oh the fun I used to have with film.



The back cracked me up too. Exposere?



Farewell my sweet, sweet Kodachrome.



Farewell.

*SIGH*

Rod wants to confess to you that for about 5 years after the song came out he thought it said "Mama don't take my comb and throw it....away". What the heck???? And that was B4 his hearing loss! BTW,I think the nostalgic photo was very cool. Kitty looked very bored though.

Cute picture for a 13 yr old. Thanks for sharing. Yes, it is an end of an era. George Eastman would be surprised.
