Last Kodachrome roll processed in Parsons

Kodak honored Steve McCurry’s request to shoot the very last roll of Kodachrome film ever produced.

Click here for Kodak’s June, 2009 tribute to Kodachrome, McCurry’s comments and his most famous photo.

McCurry recently had that last roll processed at Dwayne's Photo Service in Parsons, Kansas. Dwayne's is the only photo lab in the world still processing Kodachrome. Their web site currently indicates:
“On December 30th we will process the last roll of Kodachrome slide film.”
Momma took my Kodachrome away!

I captured some brilliant images on Kodachrome. Barring some catastrophe, those framed photos will outlive me by a long shot (as will the original slides). But, I have already outlived the film those photos were captured on. And, so it goes. The end of an era. It was a good run.
