Watery Wednesday #53

I have not taken any watery shots this week so I went back into my folders and came up with these two. Not the sharpest or the best quality. I took them in 2001 on a trip to the Northwest. We were riding the ferries through the San Juan Islands, pre-digital and scans of actual photo-paper snaps.

Hi Denise, these "pre-digital" shots are just as good as the digital ones. I remember those days on 35mm films. I have noticed that you have quite a collection of old photographs, and you know how to keep memories last.

I love the hillside behind the ship. It's great you have figured out how to scan the old photos. I tried the old scanner once and came up with something that is not a jpeg or anything remotely close and my computer can't read it! I have it on my list of things to do but I just can't ever seem to get to it!

Thank you, Denise, for your kind comments on my blog. I enjoy taking pictures. Like many of us who post our pictures to themes and memes and such, I think it's a type of therapy: to be both take them and post them!

I love Today's Flowers. One of my favorites, of course! :-)

Peace to you and yours,
Gina

Lovely views ;--)
I've not tried to scan any of my 35mm slides yet, but I understand it can be done and one of these days I'll check it out.
Hugs and blessings,

Your pictures look great to me--but I understand how you feel. I have SO many older pictures and anytime I share them, I wish I had taken them recently with our 'better' cameras.

BUT--to me, yours are GREAT.
Hugs,
Betsy

How nice it would be to have a little airplane just park behind the house on a lake.

The photos look great Denise. Beautiful country too.

Beautiful pictures Denise!
Glad to know you had a fabulous time there.
I had a different trip in 2001 as well,and it was a warm July I remember it was not comfortable for me.
I like ferries but I need to confess that I'm always afraid of the water!
I'm silly I know that! :)

Great photographs.

Hey Denise: I want to be there right now. I love seeing predigital.

Pat said...

I think those photos came out pretty well for being scans of paper photographs. Taking the ferry through the San Juan islands looks like fun! Thanks for visiting my blog.

I have "met" you through Today's Flowers.
What fun photos! I was there, also, in 1998, and your photos brought back the memory.
I very much enjoyed reading your "about me" statement.

Tabib said...

Not the sharpest, it bring back your memory of pre-digital pics and travel.

Nice work.

I think they're very good pictures. Scanning in photographs doesn't always work how you want it to, but these have a good colour to them.
