Things are still fairly hectic over here and they will be for another week or so, and therefore I will take this opportunity of including one of my re-discovered 1960s and 1970s images. There is something quite peaceful and satisfying in feeding a strip of old negatives into the scanner and seeing what comes out of the other end. It is a form of time travel and a journey of rediscovery and an eminently suitable occupation for a time when everything outside seems to be as cold and grey as many of the old 35mm negatives themselves. For those interested in detail, this particular negative shows Rhodes Street in Halifax and I must have taken it in the late 1960s. Shortly after the area was re-developed and although some of the buildings survived they were "cleaned up" ind inter-spaced with bright new brick boxes. There is something about the atmosphere of this old shot which seems to mirror my mood today. Over on my Daily Photo Blog I have, for the last week or so, been featuring some of my re-scanned forty-year old images of Halifax. By the end of September I hope to have chosen the 12 I will incorporate into my 2011 Calendar. This one, I think, will make the cut.
