They've finally taken my Kodachrome Away...

I'm a huge Paul Simon (and Simon & Garfunkel) music fan, and I'll probably admit that Simon's "Kodachrome" steered me at least a little towards Nikon when I was determining what camera company I wanted to buy into when converting to digital.

The Seattle Times reports today that Kodak has pulled the plug on Kodachrome. Now, there's only one place that develops it any more -- not exactly the one-hour processing that we can get with other films. But before you stock your freezer with any last rolls you may scramble to find, Dwayne's photo has only agreed to keep processing it through 2010.

I've never shot a roll, and it looks like I never will. Still, I'm a sentimental sucker and I'm a little saddened by this news.
