I am constantly reminded of that as I scan the rest of my Kodachrome archive. Only about 10,000 more sldes to go.

Re: A few images from the last roll of KODACHROME

A story from my family.

One day in the early 1900's, my grandfather and a few of his friends where standing on the sidewalk in front of his livery stable when a automobile drove by. He is quoted as saying "I do not know why anyone would want one of those noisy, stinking things when they could be driving a fine looking team of spirited horses."

Within a couple of years, he was out of business, broke and the livery stable was now the home of the Ford dealer who was selling Model T's and doing quite well at it.

Anybody still want to go back to when horses where THE mode of transportation?

Re: A few images from the last roll of KODACHROME

nice pics, creativeretouch. kodachrome was a great film. but, i disagree with repairman a bit. i think digital has now surpassed film in many ways. not all, but many. i look at algarve's pics he posts here and marvel at the grain. color, resolution, and the sheer ease of using and retouching has put many film cameras to rest, including my own. but, i do like the tone and mood of a good film, especially in the movies.

point taken, mike. but i would also caution, we may all be riding horses again if things dont change a bit on this planet (and i mean that literally, not figuratively), but that's for a different thread.

You are right of course Kraellin but now and again I feel nostalgia for the 'old ways'!
Always happens when a New Year kicks off.

Anyone - I would like to digitise about 50 35mm transparencies. It's domestic stuff so I want a good standard without each slide being fussed over shot by shot. I've been quoted £2 each from a local lab. Is that competitive or should I shop around

i do understand. i kinda miss fussing over film, trying to figure out whether to load with a b&w or color, 24 or 36 shots, kodak or something else and then agonizing over seeing them turn out, but i wouldnt trade my digital in, either
