On the contrary, this is a great thread! How many ever really thought there might be another chance at Kodachrome, however once-in-a-lifetime it might have been?
Are there another four of you out there???
I'd be happy to be counted as another 1 - my best roll of Kodachrome from its last few months got overlooked when I was mailing my last batch to Dwayne's and I _want_ to see it developed. Aren't there a few other people in a similar situation? I would spend months enjoying looking at each frame, at under $8 a frame.
Pfft – there is more value in the conceptual artistic merit of the ‘Mystery roll’.
Put it on ebay – with the description:
FOR SALE – 1 x roll of exposed Kodachrome, taken by a mystery photographer.
Who was the photographer? Was it your next door neighbours grandfather, or was it shot by the dude who took ‘Afghan Girl’…..
What are the images? Do we have pictures of Aunt Bettie’s cat, or do we have the evidence that it was the person on the Grassy knoll
Revel in the wonder. You may just have the most important photographs in the world sitting on your shelf.
I think if we start at $1000/roll, surely we could get at least $500,000?
(kinda like selling pieces of the real cross, hey…)
Maybe we could use Kodachrome for the next five "Let's All Shoot One Camera" cameras, take one or two frames each, and all split the cost.
+1. I would be willing to part with a few bucks to get a handful of frames. Of course, we'd need to make sure we have good K-Chrome, a good camera, and most importantly, a reliable financial intermediary.
