Kodachrome was the world’s most popular color film from 1935 until it was sadly discontinued in 2009. As a slide film, opposed to negative, the colors are exceptional. There are hundreds of thousands of Kodachrome slides for sale on line. If you find a picture you like, you can buy it and digitally scan it to make prints. You can also do it the old- fashioned way: analogue.
I found this slide on eBay and I’m having an analogue print made of it for my dad as a Christmas gift. My dad loves trains so I thought this would be neat. There’s a shop in Portland called Blue Moon Camera that will make analogue prints and enlargements on light sensitive paper if you bring them developed film. I can’t wait to see how this turns out!
There’s so many ways to get around in Tokyo!
Walking. I walked EVERYWHERE when I lived in Tokyo.
The world’s busiest intersection.
Old ladies walk.
People walk with umbrellas.
And of course, bikes! Sooooooo many bikes.
Then there’s cars. Small car.
Cool car that I wish Audi would sell in the U.S.
Another expensive car.
And even another expensive car!
Trains are a great way to get around too. I commuted to work on the Chiyoda line every morning.
Waiting for the train. 😦
Waiting on the train.
Sleeping on the train. 🙂
And when you have to leave Tokyo…airplanes.
