Kodachrome

Do you still have old rolls of film in the back of a drawer that need developing? If the film is Kodak Kodachrome, time is running out for you to have it processed. According to the June 22, 2009 news release from Kodak, Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, is the only location that can develop Kodachrome film. They will process your film only if it is received by noon on December 30, 2010.

When Kodachrome color film was created in the 1930s it became a favorite for amateurs and professionals. The Kodak website includes a slide show on their blog, “A Thousand Words.”  Photographers have posted entries to share their personal Kodachrome memories.

Our collective memory may only recall the word Kodachrome as the title of a Paul Simon song. We may have put our film camera in the attic, converted our slides to computer images and gladly embraced digital. There is one thing that hasn't changed, we continue to delight in capturing and sharing images of the world around us.
