Kodachrome is well and truly over now
I sometimes wonder if this would have gotten as much attention as it did if Paul Simon had not had his hit "Kodachrome" in the early 1970s. OK, granted, it had a unique look and yes, it was just about the first colour film available to the masses in the western world. But honestly, by the mid 1970s there were a lot of other films in the E-6 process available. I've always prefered the look of Fuji slide film over the somewhat alien look of the Kodachrome K-14 process.

But, let's honor this film with what I think is the best pic ever shot on it:
Steve McCurry's shot of an Afghan girl.
