    Lost and Found: The amazing story of Charles Cushman in full color

    Saw this posted on Facebook: http://www.npr.org/news/specials/2012/cushman/

    In the late 1930s, color film was pretty rare. But one amateur named Charles Cushman couldn't get enough.

    Nice commentary and slide sequence! I think its great that they have compiled a book together of his images, must have been a monumental and time consuming effort. I still have a link of his scanned archive that I was trying to flip through in the past.

    If anyone has a bit of time I suggest flipping through a bit of it. Its a bit shocking to see all the things he has captured in color when you are so used to seeing black and white from those eras.

    A bit of time indeed. Tons of stuff to look at. I will have to return to that page many times. The guy was a good photographer.

    If not for Kodachrome we wouldn't have those beautiful color images.

    I couldn't decide if I should put a happy face or sad face next to that sentence so I put neither.
    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.
