I wish. This was taken at the local botanical garden.

Glad you like it, Bo.
I bet that image sings when it’s projected.

That’s one of the funny things about Kodachrome. It projects more attractively than E-6 transparencies, but E-6 fades much less rapidly than Kodachrome when exposed to bright light. They say one hour for Kodachrome. E-6, on the other hand, can tolerate up to three hours. I should add that a friend of mine tested Kodachrome’s projection tolerance and found that after just thirty minutes, some of his slides began to show signs of fading. Moral of the story: avoid projecting Kodachrome regularly.

Ahhh, Kodachrome, boohoo 😦
Gorgeous, I like the mixture of in and out-of-focus.

Thanks for the comment, Joshi.
My favorite! Purple and Green and any plant that looks like lavender! YOu are right, this did scan nicely!

Yeah, this plant is much nicer than it’s common name – “pickerel weed.” It’s scientific name – “Pontederia” – ain’t so bad, though.

Nice strong color you obtain here. We can recognize the Kodachrome signature. Nice finding.

Thanks. It’s not my favorite film, but I can appreciate the results.

Beautiful colors, love the DoF.

Always nice to see a new face around here. 🙂

That is a beautiful shot, the focus is soft but intimate

Thanks. This scan didn’t come out as sharp as I’d hoped. That’s what I get for using a cheap scanner.

I read in the newspaper that they were getting rid of kodochrome, did you take all of these pictures?
July 11, 2009 at 6:48 PM
Yes, I took every photo you see on this blog. Thanks for stopping by.
