1010 : Light, Dark And Textures


There are few things more therapeutic than scanning old negatives. It is not just the scanning but the process of getting rid of the tiny scratches and dust-spots of thirty or forty years of storage. And this process allows you to re-examine the original image in detail and re-discover whatever combination of light and dark, whatever mixture of textures, attracted you to release the shutter all those decades ago. This picture was taken in the 1960s on the hills overlooking Halifax.

It is wonderful to bring back a photo of such a great capture. Bringing life back to an old image is magical. I really like black and white photos and this sure was worth saving and remaking.

Hate the damned security thing - takes about 10 cycles to get something I can recognise the letters of.

Hopefully I have disabled the bloody thing now - although it was a pain to discover how to do this. If you happen to read this Phil could you leave a comment to check that it is disabled (and let me know whether it is) as my comments always go up without verification.
