Not that we're torturing ourselves intentionally here but we've got more Kodachrome news! This time around, we have the story of a man traveling from Arkansas to Kansas to pick up 15,000 Kodachrome stills he had printed!
I could never imagine printing 15,000 photos in one go but 53-year-old Kodachrome fanatic Jim DeNike did just that before Dwayne's Photo closed its doors to K-14 processing. DeNike spent a whopping $15,798 in total for his Kodachrome stash, which were all photos of railroad trains. Now that’s quite a number! It certainly seems steep but hey, he’s now part of Kodachrome’s colored history!
In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.

Inspired by summertime in bloom, the new Lomo’Instant Kyoto Edition is the latest addition to our creative instant photography line-up! With its intricate floral and peach design, this special edition camera is reminiscent of beautiful summer sunsets in Kyoto, a city adored for its picturesque shrines, temples and nature scenery.
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
