Sitting in my hall cupboard, for many a year, is a case of transparencies – slide – yes images taken with real actual film, dating back well over a decade.
It’s been on my to-do list for a very long time, but I’ve taken the chance to start scanning them in – because these days a picture that doesn’t exist digitally might as well not exist at all, really.
They are labelled, and I think, somewhere, there is a key, but at the moment it is all a bit of a mystery (the boxes have got mixed up over time). I’ve done one with pics from Sri Lanka, Cambodia and I think India – I wasn’t really a bad photographer in those days, if a little over-fond of sunsets. (And these are done with a cheap scanner, so the colour and the sharpness are both a bit off – I do think the slides are better.)
Here’s a small selection…
If memory serves, this is an elephant sanctuary on the road between Colombo and Candy…
