photoblog image 70's Scotland

70's Scotland

Last week I featured pictures of Scotland, some of which were taken in the early 1970's with my old Praktica Super TL camera and Kodak Ektachrome film, which I then scanned into my computer.

As they seemed quite popular I have found some more "golden oldies" but rather than show them one at a time I have produced a collage of the five which I hope you will find just as enjoyable to look at.

That's collages three days on the trot now so something a bit different tomorrow. This, by the way, is my 150th.post since I started in December.

Postcard quality here Brian, I remember my brother had a Praktica too, he was in a graphic school on Holland, to learn how to be a printer and one of his subjects was Photography, he and I did a lot of B&W and we developed and printed in a darkroom we had made at home, we had great fun.
Congratulations on you 150s post, you have both quantity ans QUALITY, the last is the most important, good luck for the next 150!!
Brian Walbey: I used to enjoy B&W in the darkroom as well Astrid but at least with digital there are no prints to dry and dishes to wash at the end. Thanks for your nice comment again.
