Why I Like Kodak
Wish You Were Here
To write about one of the most successful American industries in history is not easy, especially when the industry is based on the art of pictures, film, and photography. Eastman-Kodak is a household name. If not for Kodak, the world just might not look the same.
With determination and innovation, Kodak laboratories created the means for amateur and professional photographers to record the most fascinating subjects in the world. Most of the printed publications of of the 1960s depict a world stepping into the twenty-first century in Kodachrome. The postcard shown here is one of many examples of how Kodak touched the world with their way of processing film.
The purpose of this page is to provide a condensed index of information and links to one of the most well known innovative names in photography with history, links, photographs, and product examples.
A Walk On The Wild Side
The post card at the top from Italy is an example of an old Kodachrome print from the 1960s. Most of my postcards from Italy give credit to the Kodachrome or Ektachrome film process. The above photo is from one of my old 1960s National Geographic magazines titled "Sidewalk On The Sea," which credits the photographer and the Kodak Ektachrome film process.

What Is your favorite Kodak invention?
If you are looking for a good camera, Amazon has a wide selection of Kodak to choose from. Shown below is one example.
Take A Picture.
Taking a picture can make a memory. Viewing a photograph can kindle a memory. A picture can tell a story, provoke thought, or evoke emotion. A picture can brighten a day, make one cry, make one laugh, or make one sigh. A simple picture can inspire art, unite friends, and give someone something to talk about.
A picture is as unique as the person taking the photograph, and the viewer sometime perceives more or less than the photographer intended. One photo promotes mystery, and another records history. A photograph of a baby, a pet, a wedding, a birthday, a vacation, celebration, a hobby or event is a visual record of a moment in time.
The purpose of this lens is to welcome, educate and inspire a little joy. Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit. If you have a photo you would like to share, you are welcome to add your link to the guest book..
