Old slides

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Old slides

Postby Julio1fer » Sat May 11, 2019 9:56 pm

Testing my little film scanner, I opened old slide albums and checked a few. All of these were taken with Pentax K-1000, Ektachromes and Fujis. Normal lens 50/2 except the last one.

I miss not having E-6 film anymore, but progress is progress. At least I can show these old images! Colors have stood quite well.

Please share some old slides if you have them around!

I take it the new Ektachrome has not reached your part of the world yet. Not that I've seen much of it around here either. Some very fine photos there, Julio. I hope to get my scanner up and running soon, as I have quite a few slides to go through.

Wonderful pictures, and I especially like the portrait of your father.

I miss slides, too. I love finding my old ones -- they scan so well!
