    The light in all of these is great. I esp. like the slightly faded colors, but with all of the details still intact. I found a bunch of Kodachromes the other day, but I can’t figure out the best way to re-develop them, or scan in the slides well. I would love any suggestions: http://geographybadge.blogspot.com/2010/11/kodachrome-to-coast.html

    These are such beautiful images and certainly transport to a different time and place. I love old photos like this.

    It’s amazing to see the Before/After shots. I always wonder why people de-beautify grand old homes.

    Its nice to know that people have been trying to sneak photos of attractive girls, probably since the dawn of the camera.

    I took my family West this fall, over the road. The feeling you get when you look at these photo’s was my goal.

    The golden age of being a self determined man.

    The photo of the guy holding the Gila Monster is amazing. Nice to see the American Southwest represented.

    Great stuff. Real men just walk around all the time holding a Gila monster.

    I found a link to this from someone on tumbler. I love reading articles about kodachrome (though not as much as I enjoy seeing photos taken with it!).

    A favorite, as always. It’s painful to see that LA corner in present time once you’ve seen what it’s past life was.

    I am almost smelling the freakishly bad odor in the fish camp with those 5 guys holding up their catch. Cigars, pipes, fish, BO, and spilled stale beer…the smell of men having fun!

    The old b&w LA street signs were a graphically more appealing style than the present day blue and white ones.
