Although I greatly admire McCurry, whom I consider one of the most iconic photographers, I think that his Kodachrome photos were not at par. Probably because he did not have the inspiration, probably because he pressed harder than usual to make something exceptional out of that last roll. Anyway that was a historical, very emotional shooting session, an adieu of all of us that we loved that film because of the quality and hated it because of the long turn around time. McCurry's picture with his Nikon F6 in front of the taxi with the KRX plate, moved me back many years ago travelling all over Greece with my Nikon F2A loaded with Kodachrome and EPR64.
Another circle in the loci of the moments of our lives ended. Those moments usually starting with 1/125 sec, maturing by the time and long live as long as memory can recall.
Thank you Kodachrome, thank you Steve.
The resemblance will continue as a preset in a PS plug-in program.
Things change and we change along with them. It is hard for me to accept it but I cannot do otherwise.
