Kodachrome Obituary

For those of us old enough to remember, Kodachrome photographic film was the standard of the industry when producing color images for reproduction in magazines.  This week marks the end of an era as the last processing facility in the world closes its Kodachrome processing line.  This image was produced on Kodachrome 100 in the early 1980’s and like the Junk passing through Hong Kong Harbor, Kodachrome passes into the history books.
