Last few from Latvia visit

I was hoping to post some images from my replacement Olympus OM40 that I bought a couple of months ago, I scanned the negs and when I opened them in Photoshop there were dust specs all over them. I am a man of patience but… so I will re-scan them later in the week.

So here are the last images from my Latvia visit.

Wild flowers at the family cemetery.

    Lovely pictures. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I was born and raised in NYC. I want to return home someday but right now the fall is coming with lovely colors and soon it will be mushroom picking time.
