Side By Side By Scanner



One of the great advantages of scanning from 35mm negatives is that, if you are lucky, the negative will be cut into strips of six or so negatives, thus preserving the order photographs were taken. After the passage of forty or more years, this proximity can be a vital clue in trawling through your past times. So here are Isobel and I, side by side on the moors overlooking Halifax 40 years ago. We are still side by side today.

  1. Nice! But it looks like poor Isobel is about to be swept off that rock by the wind.

  5. They are such great photos. Both have a great expression of two people out on a lark on a very windy day. The background shows a landscape that alway will be fascinating to me. We don't see land and fauna like that anywhere over here. I found some film the other day that you have inspired me to explore.
