Latest vintage swim and others...


The latest batch of vintage photos. These top two are, in fact, negatives. For Christmas I asked for, and received, some darkroom chemicals. Scanning negatives onto a computer when they are anything other than 35mm format  - which most vintage negatives are - can be very tricky. These two images are the ones provided by the sellers and not scans that I've made myself. Anyway, in the course of my collecting of old photos I have picked up all manner of negatives from 35mm format through to large glass plates and I thought it might be fun to have a go at contact printing them. So if I get any time this coming weekend, it's one of the projects I have in mind to have a go at. The third photo is a rather nice group and some real hunky monkeys in there. And the final one, I just couldn't resist, not a swimwear justification in sight but who cares, that's one amazing bottom!
