National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry posts a tribute to Kodachrome:
Today is the day that Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, the last lab on the planet to process Kodachrome, stops developing the iconic film forever. When Kodak stopped producing the film last year, they gave me the last roll. When I finished shooting the final frames, I hand-delivered it to Parsons. Here are a few of those last 36 frames.
I don’t think it’s fair for a photographer to create that many great shots on a single roll of film.
