Sometimes in Berlin we get bright days with a very hazy light, and today was one of those days, which is why I mention it. This sort of light creates great contrasts that are softened by the haze, giving pictures much the same sort of look as the discontinued Kodachrome 64 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kodachrome), a classic film that had a unique look in landscape pictures. The last roll of Kodachrome was processed in 2010 for National Geographic with much fan fare and lamentation from those who still loved to use it. It’s sad that an icon like this is no longer available, even to professionals who would pay the extra, but there just isn’t enough people using film to make it financially viable anymore.
Maybe that’s both the boon and the curse of the computer, it can replicate what it kills.
