They took my Kodachrome away.

I didn't shoot a lot of Kodachrome back when I was still using film, but it still makes me a bit melancholy to see Kodak dropping it from their line. I usually favoured Fuji film because most of my pictures were outdoor nature shots, and I always felt that Fuji handled the blues and greens better. Even so, the main thing that kept me from doing much shooting with Kodachrome was its rather narrow exposure latitude.

Shooting regular film (and now digital) may not yield quite the same results, but at the same time I don't have to spend as much effort ensuring that I tailored the shot to match the film.

Kodachrome leaves behind a legacy of some truly great and memorable photography, though in fairness I think some of the credit has to go to the photographers as well.
