The Early 40's in NYC on Kodachrome

Today I stumbled upon this astonishing collection of color photos taken in the early 1940's by Charles Cushman. They are so vivid, immediate and illuminating - I can't take my eyes off of them.  Evidently Cushman was a tourist who snapped these photos on Kodachrome, an expensive color reversal film. Click HERE to read the full article and see more photos.

And the beauty and longevity of these photos remind me we could all sing a rousing chorus of: 'Mama don't take my Kodachrome away' - :-)

Too late. Kodachrome is gone and Kodak will stop making film altogether very soon.
But you can still buy Fuji.
I love film and will NEVER go digital.
