The last roll of Kodachrome

Kodachrome II had incredible color, National Geographic insisted its photographers all used it. McCurry is one of the all-time great photojournalists. He shot the last roll of Kodachrome ever processed (on December 30th 2010). Here are some of the images from that roll which he published on his blog. This is what he wrote on December 30th
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
