My first five images today are from our family slide collection, shot in approximately 1971 and shared previously back in January 2018. The remainder are prints showing Fort Bragg’s Noyo Harbor in 1967. My sister was kind enough to mail them to me awhile back, and I kept forgetting to publish them, until now!
Memory Monday is on a break today. I’ll see you again next week! In the meantime, here are a couple of re-scans of vintage commercial slides dating back to the 1950s. I’m still trying to figure out if I ever shared the re-scanned (i.e., improved) versions of these images, which I originally shared back in March and April 2018.
I’m doing a slightly different Memory Monday today only partly because I discovered a few previously overlooked family slides. Another reason, strange as it may seem, has to do with trees. With all the powerful storms that have been blowing through our region this month, a lot of neighborhood trees have come down — many landing on vehicles and houses. […]
On this Easter Sunday, I planned to dig into my archives and share a few vintage images of my sisters and I posing with the spoils of our morning Easter Egg hunt — like this one: But of course, I waited until the last minute to start looking for the photo files. I’m certain I have them tucked away safely […]
Two weeks ago for Memory Monday I shared photos of the kids tearing into their presents during Christmas 1983, and this week you can see them after the toys were all assembled and ready for action. You can probably tell this was Southern California (Anaheim) by the fact they were wearing short sleeves and no jackets despite it being late […]
I’m just about to the end of my slide collection, but I came across these images of Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe, probably shot in the mid 1960s, which I had scanned and then forgotten about. Not a half bad way to finish out the year! I’m not yet sure where Memory Monday will be going from here, but I’ve […]
With the holidays drawing ever closer, it seems a good time to look back, both today and next Monday, at some slide images from Christmas past. I shared at least some of these pictures back in May 2017, but happily I recently had the chance to re-scan them and come up with more vivid and realistic colors. They were shot […]
I first visited, and explored, the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, during the spring of 1974 (I shared my photos of that trip back in June 2017); but my images this week all date from 1983 — when we didn’t enter the ship but went only as far as the parking lot. Nowadays, the Queen Mary is closed for […]
I’ve posted some of these photos before, including back in 2017, but this is the first time I’ve rescanned them and got better results with the colors (although not always perfect). All of these images date from the first half of 1983 and were shot in and around my parents’ house.
