Above Pecos, New Mexico, along the river in March 1983

I mentioned yesterday about the very short tonal range of older Kodachrome films, and the above image is another good example. The white chair is completely blown out in the dark scene, and there is no way to recover it as we would be able to do today in the digital age. Funny thing, all these years I've been saving thousands of old slides which are now 20-30 years old thinking I would one day be able to scan them for make "great" prints. As I look back through them now, those images are not nearly as good as I thought when I first made them. Very interesting that.
