    Every year i make a poster/picture which i ship out to great customers and colleagues i thing have the right passion for photography. This year i have made this poster. Did it in my studio with items from my colection. Shot on 4x5" and drumscanned. Its also a tribute to commercials made a long way back in memory lane and off course a tribute to Kodak!

    I think I'm about to choke up.
    I developed my last roll of Panatomic-X a couple of days ago.:mad:

    Nice work, by the way.

    That was really nice.

    The day Portra NC goes away, I honestly think I may give up the entire medium.

    If I send you some postage, can I have one of those to put up in my Darkroom?

    Panatomic X, I have a half dozen rolls of 120 left, after that I'll try to get it out of my mind. It was the best film ever made and I miss it badly.

    I just had a thought.. over the past few months I have been collecting Kodachrome boxes that I pick up cheap off of eBay. I think I might make myself up a still life and shoot it this weekend! Not to steal your idea or anything.

    Nice idea, pity about the apostrophe. Sorry, but those things annoy me.

    I agree. Nice idea but the superfluous apostrophe ruins it for me.

    Its incorrect, but after i did a lot of research on Kodak and other commercials and adds from the 40's and 50's i choosed to use it, just beacause many did it back in the days. Its more graphic and layout than it's correct language.
