From the Archives: Europe 2000

I have been scanning my old negatives, though admittedly not doing a very good job of it.  Somehow I just don’t find the time or inclination to sit on my back side and go through thousands of negatives.  I know it needs to be done, but I always seem to find something else to do.

So here is a small sampling ‘From the Archives’ and many boxes of old negatives I have, labeled only ‘Europe 2000’.

When I hung up my film camera for my first digital camera I was shooting a European model, a Canon EOS 5D.  Which ironically is the same model name digital camera I now shoot, a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

I will say that going through my old negatives has been a very humbling experience.  When I first started scanning them I decided to only keep what was ‘wall worthy’.  But going through them, I found a LOT of junk.  Many pictures I found myself wondering ‘what were you thinking?’, ‘what’s that of?’, ‘why didn’t you move to get that out of the way?’.  So I’ve had to ease up on my criteria, just because I wasn’t as good then as I aspire to be now.

So that’s my walk down memory lane from Europe 2000.  Maybe this should be an ongoing regular or periodic segment to inspire me to step up my scanning  so that I might actually get through it at some point.
