    2 Years Ago This Week - Last Of Kodachrome

    That was the day my daughter was born. I got the T-shirt to commemorate both! Wish the film was still around to enjoy.

    If Kodachrome hadn't gone, I would've never discovered my two main films I use now: Delta 100 & Pan F.
    IOW - I'd never made it into the darkroom. I finally took the plunge after 20+ years of shooting color tranparencies, and nothing else - no understanding of the photographic process, just shooting. So the loss of Big K had it's purpose for me.
    Yes I agree with you all - don't look back. But of course, we can't not look ahead - we're film shooters. Trepidation...

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Actually my story isn't to dissimilar from yours....

    Lol...

    My first two rolls were my last two rolls. I bought them right after the announcement. Being the wonderful procrastinator that I am, I waited till the last minute to start shooting. So my pictures were of winter in Pittsburgh with a few window-lit portraits of my family. I really didn't know what I was doing. I regret that the film sat in my freezer that summer. Anyway, the film was shipped the week before Christmas and came back in early January.

    The slides are still sitting in a box. The scans from Dwayne's were horrible, and I don't have a way to make prints or a scanning target to get accurate colors from my own scans.

    So that's my story.

    No myth. The deleted thread was not actually deleted- just misplaced. Or to be accurate, releted. Somewhere. We just haven't found it. I think Sean knows, but he ain't sayin'. To actually delete the deleted thread would have a serious mysterious deleterious effect on a comic- I mean cosmic scale (which I guess is used to measure really huge stuff).
    Many members commented; some participated regularly. It predated most participants. I myself personally got drunker'n hell taking it over 3000 posts. Brian revealed an interesting anatomical fact about himself. Sirius of course instigated regularly. PE participated sometimes, giving it a legitimacy it could never have gotten from us lunks. Schroedinger got discussed, with some catty comments and hurt felines. Many puns were uttered- they had groan bad to the point of punishment. All in all, a theater of the absurd, with a bunch of bad actors. The moderators rolled their eyes and moved it around the site, but we always found it. It's rumored Jason Brunner once sprained his eyes from an involuntary roll.

    Ironic it's mentioned in a thread about Kodachrome- huh, Sirius?

    I agree with lxdude and BrianShaw with the exception of the dreaded two letter troll.

    The deleted thread was always much better than the dreaded Kodachome has been deleted thread.
