Argus Kodachrome

863145-R1-01-2

This is a recent scan of a Kodachrome shot some 65 years ago by my father of his father and uncle with the Argus C3 from my last post.  Back then Kodachrome only came in one speed, 10 ASA.  Good light was a must.  I’ve always loved the colors in this photograph with the swing’s blue and the cane’s beiges repeated in Uncle Max’s shirt.  Almost to a slide, Dad’s Kodaks have held up very well.  I think this one is remarkable for it’s age and a testiment to a well composed and exposed 35mm positive film using technology from a more simple time.
