I like a good song to sing and have been wanting to give my vocal chords some exercise. I chose, Paul Simon's song, Kodachrome. Even though it is a
somewhat upbeat peppy song, I find myself longing for the days before digital. Years and years ago, my high school taught photography and there was a
tangibly satisfying relationship between the person behind the camera and the entire process of the developing film. As the photographer, you were
there every step of the way.
So here is, Kodachrome by Paul Simon...
Do the nice people here on ATS ever find yourselves longing for items of the past?
If you are so inclined, please share
Love Kodachrome, one of my favorites by Paul Simon.
I went to school for cinematography and a large portion of that in the early stages was learning photography in an attempt to ingrain in us how to
frame a shot. The cameras we were told to purchase were all old Nikon FE's that still used the old containers of film.
I loved everything about that camera and the whole process. Some of my favorite pictures were taken with it.
Now I have a Nikon D7000 and it's brilliant but there's something missing.

In high school I had a daydream about learning how to make movies and for a time really considered it.
Every thing from just 20 years ago is like vintage now. I'm getting too old and things of the future move at such a quick pace, I can barely keep up.
I just want an old fashioned camera.
I'm going to go wandering around now and look for an old telephone booth, call up and old bud and make my way down to a dirty old run down hole in
the wall, order a gentleman's drink, put the juke box on and play a cheap round of pool.
Excellent song to lift a melancholy mood, thanks DISRAELI!
