Singapore 1970 with Kodachrome 25

In 1970 I was a sailor on the USS Bon Homme Richard. One of our ports of call was Singapore. I took a few photos with my favorite film of all time, Kodachrome 25. It is a very slow, fine grained film and the colors have lasted for all these years. Sadly many of the shots I made with  Ektachrome have not fared very well. At the time I foolishly thought they were interchangeable.

I used a Nikkormat fitted with a 50mm Nikkor f1.4 lens. Judging by the DOF, the lens was wide open.
