Today’s Top 5

Artistic licence

As one who has never set foot in the United States, and knowing everything I know from books or films, I am inclined to say these guys here pretty much look like Dorothy and Toto, following the Yellow Brick Road.

Timeless, or Timely?

I was 10 when this pic was taken and I always look today for photos that remind me what it was like with less than half the population we have now and maybe one fourth to one fifth of the vehicles.

It's certainly a beautiful photo but to me its beauty is in its timeliness. It's 1952 and it's never coming back.

Prescription for stress

Go to the country. Take a dog. Go for a long, quiet walk.

This is like a painting. Love it.

Like a View-Master

This scene could be straight from a 1950s Sawyer's View-Master scenic reel: the large tree in the right foreground, the vast distance, the solitary human added for scale, and the sun-drenched Kodachrome colors. I'd love to see this in 3D.

Simon Says

I am convinced Paul Simon was looking at this Kodachrome slide when he wrote the song of the same name.

Great dog

I love Sally. Photogenic, and steals the scene every time.


Could be of tomorrow or of over 60 years ago.


I don't think our digital cameras could deliver a photograph as good as this Kodachrome.

Like a Painting!

Can't thank you enough for sharing these remarkable Kodachromes with us!

Great photo

Timeless subject w\ great lighting and composition. What's not to like?

Life is good

Loyal dog, pretty country road, beautiful fall day.

He sure had the touch

Mr. Tuttle knew his way around a camera. Wonderful shot! Again!

Best in Show.

Just great. My favorite of the bunch.
