This one rocks

Paraglider's newest toy is a 35mm slide and negative scanner. I have a 35-year backlog of stuff to digitise, which begins to look more like a 50-year collection if I take into account my late father's photographic legacy. This is going to keep me off the streets (maybe!)for the next few months at least. I'm still learning how to use it, but it seems to do a pretty good job on old B&W negatives too. This one seems to be rocks on a beach, almost certainly somewhere, taken some time ago. I probably need to work on my detail recall too! Happy New Year, friends!


  1. That's actually a rather nice image! When one is in the proper mood, something like this can be quite good fun.

  2. Hi Richard - my main reason for getting the slide scanner is so I can share with the extended family my father's pics from 50 years ago. But I've also got my own backlog of negs from nearly 40 years ago, many of which I couldn't afford to print, so it will be interesting to see what I've got there. Thanks for the visit.
