There is a rumor that Kodak, the Great Yellow Father, will stop making color film in five years. This will not produce a Chicken Little effect in the photo world, at least not yet. By coinky-dink, I heard the Paul Simon song "Kodachrome" on the computer. I was going to say "radio" but that isn't right either. The first eventthat I ever photographed was a Simon and Garfunkel concert with my families Polaroid. My mom wanted a dishwasher, my dad bought her a Polaroid and it sat in a drawer until I snuck it out of the house. Polaroids, Instamatics, Brownies....all part of a fabric of my life in photography. Everything looks worse in black and white.
