I love New York City during the holidays and felt it would be special to shoot my last rolls of Kodachrome film there.

Kodak's 75 year old film was retired in 2009 and the only remaining facility that can process this special film is running it's last bath of Kodachrome K-14 processing this Thursday, December 30th.

A blizzard brought 20 inches of snow to New York City, making the streets a winter wonderland.

I packed light. In hand, my Canon AE-1 Program camera with my Canon FD 20 - 35mm f3.5 L lens. Stuffed in my pocket, my Holga 135bc camera, complete with Wide Angle Lens Adapter. Kodachrome 64 loaded in my Canon, my last two rolls of Kodachrome 200 reserved for my Holga.

Bitter sweet and Bitter cold—A wonderful photo outing in-progress.
