A Window to 1922

Photography has never been my thing, which is surprising given its role in my novel The Night Caller and another novel still fermenting in my brain. I do love the photographs that give us a window to the distant past.

Kodak recently posted the 1922 original Kodachrome motion picture film test reels from George Eastman's collection online. Keep in mind this is thirteen years prior to the first full-length color motion picture.

A little like time travel, don't you think?

That was really cool and the music was so lovely.

Wow, L.A, I loved seeing this. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to go practice my bright red pucker lips in the mirror so I'll be ready for my next close-up! I really enjoyed that.

A bit off topic but I love the word Kodachrome. It makes me think of Paul Simon :)
