Note to self…never chuck Negatives

Well, it’s a bit late now! But over the years, with house moves especially, it’s easy to get rid of stuff.

Yesterday, in the heat, I thought I would do some gentle sorting….I didn’t get far, because I came across some more old prints. Ruined tunnels, on a long demolished railway line, that my father and I had come across in the ’70s… It was the  explore that never happened, because we were to come back with a torch. No, that never came about.

This morning I got searching for the negatives, but they weren’t in the box, so clearly disappeared yonks ago. I tried a scan of the prints, but the quality is atrocious, as you can see, here.

  1. Oh dear! I chucked so many African negatives, thinking I wouldn’t ever need them!

  2. Can you even find a lab that will process negatives these days? Here, there’s no place that develops film.

  3. I did save all my negatives. Just don’t ask me where I put them! 🙂 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I have lots of slides, too, and negatives. 🙂


  5. Losing negatives is sad… but I do think that your version of scanned copies are adding a layer of mystery… there are ghoststories in each of them.

  6. Doubt if I have any useful ones and I didn’t know there was such a thing as a film scanner. 😦 I didn’t get very far with my sort photos project. Too daunting! 🙂

  7. I think many of us were guilty of this

  8. Well you could say they’re atrocious or you could say what an interesting effect you’ve applied!
