Kodachrome finally taken away

We all knew it was coming, but it's still sad -- particularly for photographers who loved the medium. Kodak has discontinued the production of Kodachrome film, and Glen E. Friedman, who shot the classic images above and below, laments its death in a blog post right here.

As far as quality products that mean something to me this one ranks above all else, even Apple.

This is like losing your favorite paint brush or camera lens or guitar, forever. Their are others, but none will be the same at all.

Perhaps one day in the future some one will invent a Kodachrome mode in digital photography....

These photos from Glen, featured in several Boing Boing Video episodes this year, were shot on Kodachrome.
