Box of Slides

Spent the day indoors again today, the weather has not been good for photography. So with all good intentions I thought I would make a list of the stuff needed to reinstate the spare bedroom back into a darkroom. Of course I got distracted ! One of the distractions was a box of slides, I couldn’t resist scanning a few of them.

This image brought back memories, I think it was about 1989 when I took this photo, testing out a Carl Zeiss Jena 35-135mm Lens, quite a good lens optically but not that good mechanically.

These were taken around 1990 on 3M  Scotch 1000 asa slide film made by Ferrania, lovely and grainy which give them an old world feel, though I suppose they are pretty old now anyway.
