Less than two months to go. I did my final search this morning and came up with 6 more rolls of PKR64, means I've got 10 to shoot in a the barely 50 days left(have to exclude shipping time). That's not going to be easy. So I did go out with a roll of 25 and a roll of 64 loaded up this morning and clicked away.
I've only shot Kodachrome since about 2001 IIRC, I learned to love it in the slide projector and absolutely hate it in a scanner. Some here have shot it for decades. Michael, for instance has on several occasions, shown us beautiful K-Chromes from the '60s. So lets just let her rip here instead of chasing over the inevitable 20 different Kodachrome threads that are bound to pop up over the next two months.
Show us your Kodachrome! Any subject, any decade, if you're so fortunate, any format. Absolutely love to see them!

Funny Tim, I was just thinking the same thing.

1985?: From Governors Island New York Minolta X700, a really cheap zoom and cheaper teleconverter on top of a wobbly department store tripod. (I really had a great time shooting this and can still remember the day vividly even if I don't remember the year!)

With apologies in advance, I also wanted to post a couple of digital shots in honor of Kodachrome: These are both shots of Kodachrome basin near Bryce Canyon Utah. Named so by the National Geographic photographers who shot it in the the late 40s. Here is a link on the history: http://static.stateparks.utah.gov/docs/KodachromeBasinBrochure.pdf

These were shot with Sony 828. At the time, I had a new digital camera and I was enthralled with it and did not think to bring a film camera. A decision I now regret.

Glenn: Is this perhaps Glacier Bay? I have driven ships through those ice fields. The blue ice is magnificent. Beware the yellow ice...

Wonderful shots all.

Here is mine for today.
Huney 2003...Figured I get a pet shot over early...:biggrin: She was a terribly shy cat, spent most of her time on a top shelf in a closet, only rarely would she come into the living room. It was late in the day, early summer with a bedroom window wide open, she was sitting on the window sill. I grabbed this shot of her from the patio looking out to the world.

Thanks Mike...

That one photo was taken just outside of Valdez, Alaska. I believe the body of water is called Port Valdez.

As I've gone through all my Kodachromes over the past two days I see a lot of Yosemite shots and a lot of Death Valley. One of the things that I loved about the stuff was it was so three dimensional projected...I might have to have a slide show December 30th! Yosemite Falls in a big water year was a fabulous subject for the 3D effect of Kodachrome and I used a lot of it on the falls. This is one of my favorites from 2003...

Tim, great kitty shot on Kodachrome. I still say KR 25 was the best colour film ever made. It has so much latitude for slide film (like the ad said, Kodachrome is really B+W).

Awesome cat shot Tim!

Here is a Kodachrome 64 image of mine:
