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

Story posted: Friday, 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 is life and one day the pictures of myself and my wife will also mean nothing to anyone.

But even though I have no names I do have two people who, it feels to me, I feel I have known for most of their lives. I have been to places, weddings and watched them grow old. Some of the memories they made will live on in me.
