    It's not fair to current shooters, but I prefer to look at old photos.

    The Year before 1968
    Athens Airport
    This from a slide - Gratispool film converted to BW
    Gratispool was cheap buy one get one back but the film colours were always poor & high contrast

    I do need to process this shot a bit though

    I think because many people (or is it just me?) kinda measurebate with digital. With older photos - particularly B&W - we are more into the subject matter. Not to mention nostalgia.

    Thanks but not many more sorry

    Surprising but after all these years I can still remember taking some of them & the thoughts in my head at that time. Particularly the escalator where I had to wait for the step off, & kneeling down for the Metro people shot.

    I've always said, photography is the closest thing we have to time travel (because it came before video/motion film). Love vintage photos.
