I miss my Kodachrome

Nothing like a roll of Kodachrome and a polarizing filter. May they rest in peace, gone the way of the steam train and the internal combustion engine. Oh the saturation!

Llano de San Juan

What is amazing is how this image could have been taken yesterday. This church is that unchanged...oh, except the doors are not as white. It's still used on special occasions.

That is the creepiest

That is the creepiest church. Imagine, at night.

Beautiful Sky

Kodachrome and images of the sky seem to go together!

and, they do age well.
