Film Images from the Archive

The "Image Thread" was started expressly for recent images, but perhaps it would also be nice to have a thread for stuff from "the archives" ... most of the film I exposed over the past 40 years is unavailable to me (it's a bit of a story) but I've found a few rolls from the early years of the century recently which have some pretty images on ... this one's from the
Top eco visitor attraction - rainforest, gardens & educational charity - Eden Project Cornwall UK in 2002 ... I'm very happy with the sharpness and detail in this scan, made with Silverfast8 on a plustek 7600i

I posted several some weeks ago from a trek in the Himalayas in late 1979, here's a couple of those recycled, I've got a print of one that I would like to post but haven't found the negative yet, I must have another look. In the meantime

Nice idea. All of these from a trip to Bermuda in July 2007 and scanned at the time of processing -

Launch tug

This is my second ever photograph, the launch tug Wolsden of W. J. Reynolds Ltd, Torpoint, the tug company for the commercial part of the port of Plymouth.
This is the River Plym about 1 mile from where I grew up, the road crossing into Plymouth from the east with the old railway bridge for the Turnchapel and Yealmpton branch lines. Taken in about 1969 using a Voigtlander Bessa 1 6x9 folding roll film camera, Quite light and, when folded, reasonably compact.

caulking a dhow

Taken in Abu Dhabi in 1976, probably late February. I'd sighted this shipyard from a helicopter as I came ashore from an offshore platform, so I was off round the back streets and byways to seek it out. A fantastic place with all sorts of craft being built with tools, some of which were described 2000 years ago.

no need to apologise to me, Barrie ... it's not "my" thread ... :) ... the pleasure of seeing your photographs from that period is immense ... and Dan's Milkweed is a stunna -- wish I could see it printed huge

I clicked through to Flickr for that one JH and encourage others to - there's a great "back story" to this image (which stands beautifully without it of course)

Ready to jump?

Another from Dubai Creek in the spring of 1977. I would hazard a guess that by their form of dress these ladies are from Ethiopia. After all these years I've only just noticed that the boy has lost his left shoe, there already seems to be a lost sandal just visible bottom left hand corner.

I've spent the past couple of weeks scanning family slides from the 1960s and 1970s. Pretty dirty and fungused-up they are too (fungi love colour emulsion if you don't store negatives or slides properly), but as a document, this one is rather an interesting one ...

Oops, sorry Luke, I just had a flickr "moment", but I've fixed it and it should be fine if you reload this page
