A Final Farewell to Kodak Ektachrome (NSFW)

It’s over. Kodak Ektachrome has been discontinued for a little while from my writing and publishing this piece. The company officially declared it the replacement for their legendary Kodachrome film. But as a guy that shot it for years, I never saw it that way. Instead, I always saw it as the sleeper hit film that no one ever paid much attention. While it wasn’t mentioned often, it was still absolutely beautiful.

Though, rolls of the film can still be bought, I’ve personally decided to not become one of those shooters that hoards loads of it in my freezer: instead giving way to chicken and other films that I have lined up for personal projects. My last two rolls of Ektachrome was spent on the Mermaid Day Parade amongst other things recently in NYC, and the images I shot will always remind me of its beautiful colors.

This post is a simple collection of my favorite photos from that roll of film. Big thanks to the Lomography company for the excellent processing and scanning job that they did.
