A Kodak Moment

Although I haven’t been a big user of Kodak products for many years, the news of Kodak filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy is still a sad event. It’s hard to believe that the company that brought photography to the masses at the turn of the century (1900 to be precise) will, at best, become a shadow of what it once was. In 1883, they promoted their camera with the advertising slogan “You press the button–we do the rest”.  You had to send the whole camera in for developing.  Before digital, I learned darkroom techniques using Kodak T-Max film, and still have hundreds of negatives stored away, along with a few rolls of unexposed film that is long past its shelf life.
