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

  3. 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.

  5. Ahhh, Kodachrome, boohoo 😦

    Gorgeous, I like the mixture of in and out-of-focus.

  8. 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.

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

    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.
