Long Hot Summer

Story posted: 5. August 2018 by Jason Sloan

It has been a very long hot summer here in somerset and most of the vegetation looks like it has been drinking at a party all night. Hung over and disheveled. Except the grass which just looks like a digestive biscuit. I would also like to add that I have been very busy working away in my slightly cooler office...... Unfortunately this is not true. Photography has taken a bit of a back seat this last 12 months. I hope to change that which is why I am typing this at 7:20 on a sunday morning before I head off to work. Fingers crossed I will add some new stuff soon.

New Scans

Story posted: 29. March 2017 by Jason Sloan

So I have been doing some more scanning of some negatives I have recently aquired and there are some wonderful colour images from the 1950's. I hope to have some of these uploaded soon. I am still working on some black and white images though and I have uploaded some of London. One is of Tower Bridge and the other is of the Festival of Britain in the 1950's.

This is something that was not possible 10 years ago and many photos remained unknown.

I recently scanned and spent the best part of 3 nights trying to find a street scene with some 18-20 something men playing American Football. I had some shops on the street and though it would be a doddle. But it wasn't. It turned out…

Scans away.................................

Story posted: 17. July 2015 by Jason Sloan

So, one of the things that I like to do is buy up old negatives. I scan them, clean them up and put them up here on the website. I have quite a backlog of these as I can't seem to stop buying them. I have some from the USA, Planes, and family snaps. The Family images I find most interesting. I have been working through some I bought about 18 months ago which star in the early 30's and finish in the middle 1960's. I have seen a couple start out in life, have holidays, go to family weddings and grow old.

It makes me sad that these pictures no longer mean nothing to anyone. But I suppose that…
