OK, clarification it is then.

He was sponsored in part by National Geographic as he chose to shoot the things that resonated with him be it overseas in India or hanging out in Robert Deniro's home theatre in NYC. By all accounts, while he did not surpass the emotion of "Afghan Girl" he did do the film justice in term of it's color palate, nuance and chose fine subject matter.
Dwayne Steinle, owner and namesake of the lab in Parsons Kansas shot the last roll to ever be processed as it was at the end of the 100+ roll batch that I saw emerge. I shot the last roll in terms of it's chronological order and had over 50 rolls on that last batch that came out on January 17th, 2011...*the* last images ever shot on Kodachrome film that was processed in official Kodak K-14 chemisty.
Jeff Jacobson shot quite a few rolls up until the last day and has come out with a wonderful book with some very dreamy and personal images called "The Last Roll". If I can ever stay off the web long enough, I will come out with my book which is looking *really* good called, "The Kodachrome Project".
