JKP: (manually added) EXIF data would have been interesting. Especially ISO-value. Grain seems to be quite high in all shots. Dark areas miss detail. Sharpness could be better in modern standards.

The "feel" of the images is sure quite strong. Film camera increases "sadness" of the the subject.

Seeing these images, I miss old film ages less and less.

Dan- I made the three hour drive down from Kansas City to Dwayne's that day, arriving just before close. Took the tour (and watched as USPS AND UPS AND FedEx arrived minutes before five with enormous pallates of huge bags of packaged film). I walked outside a few minutes after five (with my commemorative yellow Kodachrome t-shirt) and stepped across the street to shoot Dwayne's from the side with the drive-through window- the one that said "KODACHROME LAB" in bold letters across the top. I was the only person standing there when one of Dwayne's staff members came to the window and flipped the sign to "closed". I have the shot of her walking away, the sign reading closed underneath the big Kodachrome Lab decal. Yes, a completely random story, but everytime I see the file I feel like I have a little piece of history as I was the only person standing there in that moment.
