I did not have a very productive weekend this week, so today I’m sharing a few random images from the slide collection. The most interesting thing to me about the church ground-breaking pictures (besides the old cars) is the almond orchard visible in the background. Most of the trees are long gone, but they once covered the entire area, including […]
This week I’m sharing my last few Mexico Monday images; there are actually some more slides in the collection, but my current slide scanner is leaving them too washed out to use. One of these days I’ll invest in a better quality scanner that will do justice to the photos my dad took.

One is that a different color and type of fabric was chosen for the dresses worn by the women of the team each summer. One year the color was a bright reddish-orange; another year it was lime green.

Welcome back to Mexico Monday! I’ve started going through the latest batch of slides which my mom recently discovered — and like the previous images I’ve shared, most of these are not labeled, although some of them have a date stamp showing when they were developed. I’m trying to organize them by year as much as possible, but it does […]
