The last Kodachrome lab closes.

The one remaining lab in Parsons, Kansas closed last Thursday and marked the end of the famed Kodachrome film. The vivid color and warm light this film captured was beloved by amateurs and professionals alike. The film was itself an icon, becoming the title of a Paul Simon hit song. Hoarded for years in freezers as labs closed around the world many of the final rolls flooded Dwayne's Photo in the final weeks of 2010. The last roll developed belonged to store owner, Dwayne Steinle, and the last frame processed was of his employees and storefront.

More in the New York Times.
