    Me n Morris.jpg
    Here's me checking out my Dad's Morris Minor back in 1955. My older brother is in front. Wish I had some better shots of the Minor, but I haven't found any.

    My dad also had one (Morris Minor) circa 1952-53. He had it all apart on the kitchen table until mom told him to get the junk out of her kitchen! He finally got it running again and got rid of it.

    You could fit a Collins S line in the back seat. Alas, my dad wasn't a ham....but lots of his friends were. :)

    Thanks! brings back memories... there were several of those in my childhood memories and one was probably the same color scheme but my memory is black and white.

    Those are scans of Kodachrome slides, aren't they?

    Yep. All of them taken with my dad's beloved Voigtlander camera. I think it's the only camera he had for 40 years!

    My grandpa had one too! It's amazing to me the longevity of those KC slides, and the clarity of the colors after all these years. I've got many boxes myself but no way to scan them. I do still have a working projector that I drag out when I want to bore friends and neighbors!

    I just bought a Canon slide scanner specifically for this job....scanning all 2400+ photos. It was $200 and well worth it.

    I purchased a slide scanner a few years back and scanned about 15 kodak carousels worth of slides. Digital scans can be repaired and the colors improved via photoshop. Original slides will eventually wash out and lose color. I also scanned a variety of negatives (35mm, 126, and 220) and have nice prints made from the scans. It is probably the best way to archive family photos and allows sharing with family members much easier.
