Lovely photographs...hers and yours. And am very much enjoying working my way through your other blogs....
I see you have some method of posting slide images. Is it a secret or would you share? I am longing to be able to 'digitalise' my slides from my first OE mumble years ago...

I use a creaky old Minolta Dimage slide scanner, which I one day hope to replace with a new Epson D500 - that also scans medium format (ie Rolleiflex 6 x 6cm) negatives ...

Slides digitise very well but it's quite labour intensive if you have a lot. A single film of 36 slides would take me about an hour or so.

cheers

Fascinating photos - not sure which intrigue me more, the places or the people.
