    Great song, stupid lyrics. It's a Kodak commercial.

    My favorite transparency film. Long gone along with my film cameras.

    Video would not play here...

    Ahh yes... Kodachrome on 120 roll for my Mamiya and developing on Cibachrome.

    Memories of many a happy night in the darkroom with my wife to be. She has a photography degree.

    Gear in the loft now. Doubt it will ever get used again.

    Still have boxes of slides and and prints while countless digital pics have disappeared over the years.

    I gave all my camera stuff to a college to help kids learn

    Felt better than it being in a cupboard 4 eternity and selling it for zero

    Great song! Simon is an incredible songwriter and a damn fine, but underapreciated guitarist.

    Amateur photography and having a 35mm back then was a great hobby and the in vogue thing to do.

    I had a very high end stereo back then and I can remember the clarity and detail of the acoustic guitar and piano.

    As a side note, Kodak knew about the digital photography. In fact, I once read that a Kodak engineer developed the first digital camera. They just failed to act on it. You innovate and accept change or you go quietly into that goodnight.

    For some reason, I thought the song hero was taking naughty pictures, and got caught having his camera confiscated. Imaginations...

    Sold my Konica gear. I had some nice glass too. Gave my Cirroflex away, surplused my old Poloroids. Just the other day, a buddy showed up with a pinhole camera, really nicely made of walnut and brass, using 120. Glad to see film is still available.

    I love Paul Simon. And my 12-yr-old son loves him now, too. Kid has taste.

    Paul Simon, Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne. Kid loves them quirky words.

    I keep an image taken with my last roll of that film, developed in the last batch globally, proudly in my home.

    I had a couple undeveloped rolls in the fridge for years. I finally threw it out years ago after I bowed to the inevitable, went digital, and sold off all my 35mm gear. It was all manual Nikon stuff. I miss it.

    I went digital but didn't throw out boxes of film in the fridge!
    I held off in film long enough to buy all the gear to set up a great darkroom, shortly before making the switch.
    My enlarger was at the time still sold at B&H, a Beseler Dichro 45s.
    Priced at maybe $2500 new, I bought two for $15 each.

    Now the darkroom is my guitar workbench and my tech problem is managing my 36mp files.
    Also need a scanner for the shelves and shelves of B&W and color negs I've piled up.

    Groan...

    Cool though that all my vintage Nikon lenses work on my newer Nikon digital bodies!
