Post your old Kodachrome shots. (Pre 1989)

Having been inspired by Fred Herzog and his Kodachrome shots from the 1950’s & 1960s, I thought it might be interesting to have a thread so you could post your old Kodachrome shots. Let’s aim for shots taken more than 20 years ago, with bonus points if you were using Pentax gear. Since Kodachrome archival capability is second to none, this shouldn’t be too limiting.


My shots were taken in East & West Berlin in the summer of 1976, using my recently acquired Pentax kit. (KX, K28/3.5, K55/1.8 & K135/3.5)

Taken in 1977 and '78 with the only camera I had at the time, a Praktica L with standard 50mm f2.0 lens.

I recently found these in the attic and have scanned them using my Epson V500.
(I haven't processed them as the film edges are still present. Sorry.)

They were taken in Northern Ontario, mostly in and around Thunder Bay.

future father-in-law's photo of future mother-in-law, late 50's, unknown camera. I know he had a Pentax screw mount somewhere in the 60s and 70s till it was stolen.

Nice shots “J.Scott” and “Nesster”!!

That’s what I love about Kodachrome is the colour palate. It doesn’t have the “in your face” vivid colours of today’s Fuji & Kodak slide film and is more pleasing in my opinion.

Thanks.

I keep promising to drag out the slide projector and screen. Hopefully during the holidays I'll have some time. You know it's good when the image is 4' square and people still go, "Wow! Nice shot!"

I really will miss good old Kodachrome.
