Rescue Seats

The following few shots were all taken in the town of Whitby, North Yorkshire mostly using Kodachrome slide film, but also some Ektachrome too.
I bought up a stock of 'out of date' Kodachrome film way back in 1998, and it was already out of date by a couple of years on purchase. It's been sat about in a box at home unused for ever it seems. However, Kodak are just still doing their Kodachrome processing (in Kansas I believe), and so these shots arrived back home last week with that distinctive Kodachrome colour that I remember from using it years ago. It came back with cardboard slide holders with rounded edges, which I scanned with the images, which made interesting, but slightly rough borders.
For me, those colours create a slightly 'retro' look, perhaps it was the fact that the film was so out of date to start with.

These were all taken on a manual everything Nikon FM2.
