Kodachrome


Song lyrics by Paul Simon
(turn your sound on if you care to listen along with this post)

(The following photographs were taken by me with a digital Nikon.)


"Kodachrome"
"You give us those nice bright colors"


"You give us the greens of summers"


"Makes you think all the worlds a sunny day...oh yeah!"


"I got a Nikon camera, I love to take a photograph"

Celebrating 75 years

What gorgeous photos. Such diverse scenes but each is striking in it's own way. Okay, let's talk books. One author, one book...what would you recommend. I need to broaden my horizon. Patty

Oh, these photographs are wonderful. I love this song, and when I heard that it was difficult to get this film, this song went through my mind. Your photography is stunning. So nice to meet you.

Great post!

I have a friend who used to shoot with film. She STILL dislikes the results she gets with digital.

thanks for visiting my blog, I am new to all of this so love it when people join and comment. Your photos are wonderful, do you just scan them onto your computer after you get them developed? the challenges are all great, I got a couple of them off Ashley Sick's blog, I see you have her button, it's all good fun and challenging.
