A little gremlin has been poking around in my old archive files and I’ve discovered some shots I haven’t seen in almost forty years!
Since several of them could have been tailor-made for this week’s WP theme – From Above, I’m sure you’ll understand my excitement – despite the less than brilliant colour.
Beautiful photo’s, thanks!
Thank you for dropping by!
How great to find your old photos, I’m on the hunt for a box of negatives that I know is in the house somewhere………. Lovely shots from above too !
They’ll turn up … all you have to do is threaten to move! 🙂
It’s always amazing to see structures that have been standing for centuries — and are still beautiful.
I often imagine what it must be like to live in ancient towns like Dubrovnik, or that village, how it would be to live in a house that’s several hundred years old 🙂
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Did I mention these are gorgeous?
Sweet pea! 🙂
nothing like moving to unearth things meredith …. lovely lovely places … it is such a shame our old photos fade and just don’t have the same quality as our new ones … at least mine don’t ….
Strange how the old black and white photos seem to have retained their vividness, while prints from the 70s and 80s are terrible. Luckily most of the old slides have kept their colour, though for some reason not these – which is probably why they were filed away and never catalogued! But great to see them again.
Wow! These are very beautiful and interesting. Thanks for sharing. God bless you.
What a find! Lovely photos, M. Yes, moving can be a good thing from so many angles 🙂
Now it’s all over I can’t imagine why I was so stressed … and this lovely surprise reminds me how much better it is to just relax and go with the flow … 🙂
Yes, but it is not so easy…When you are in the middle, you are in the middle!
Hugs from Spain, M.!
We not only get to travel great distances around the globe, but today you have taken us back in time. Beautiful shots. I especially love the last one.
Fantastic, isn’t it? I bet a shot taken today would be jam packed full of cars and people milling about … 🙂
Absolutely amazing scenics!
it’s a wonderful world, isn’t it Phil? I loved seeing these old pictures, remembering how thrilling it was to see these sights from places I’d only read about.
Ooh! What a variety of vertiginous shots! A little lost 2 is absolutely breathtaking!
Isn’t it? I wish I knew where it was – we were heading inland, crossing the mountains toward Greece, but we were following farmers fingers and we had no idea where we were till we arrived at the border a few days later!
Absolute stunning pictures!
Thanks clumsyfool – good of you to have dropped by. 🙂
So many thrilling views and that last one is the bee’s knees!
Fairy-tale place – and without all the distractions of today’s traffic and people and advertising it looks incredible, doesn’t it?
Still beautiful and it just shows how far we have come with color photography.
I hope my digital colour will still be vivid in 30 plus years – though I guess my eyes’ll be so dim I won’t be able to tell!
They will have Galactic Color by then!
These are beautiful! I bet you’ve got plenty of similar photos in your archives, just waiting for you to re-discover them. And I , for one, will be here if you decide to post some. Thanks for sharing these.
Bless you John – I’ll enjoy sharing them. 🙂
I envy your trip to the former Yugoslavia. Someday, I want to see where my mother and her parents were born!
Oh yes – it’s a spectacular part of the world, JM – so full of physical beauty and drama, and then of course we forget, it was one of those cross roads areas, full of history … 🙂
Great entry for this week topic my friend 🙂
Thanks Jake – I know they weren’t taken especially for the challenge, but they could have been, don’t you think? Good to see you back. Hope all is well?
From above is my favourite vantage point… there is no better view than from a bird’s eye… or a cat’s eye… your gremlin made a great selection 🙂
Yes, I’m grateful to gremlin … as for vantage points, EllaDee, i used to like to have a general’s view of things, but lately I’m finding I’d rather be down there in the melee!
That’s life, lots of twists and turns to get to the top and then we reminisce. La Giralda has to be the one with the most turns.
Doesn’t it? Stupendous structure – and every step of it (well almost!) worth the effort. 🙂
Love them all. You are truly blessed my friend to see all these beautiful places.
The photos are ok – it’s the scenery that’s spectacular, don’t you think? 🙂
LOL – I stand corrected! That’s what I meant to say: The photos of the scenery are spectacular! 😎
I seriously need to invest in some better cameras before my next road trip…my words simply can’t describe nature’s beauty adequately! It needs to be seen to be appreciated fully.
I know what you mean, though even a little point and shoot if pointed at the right distance can take a great photograph which helps colour our words 🙂
awesome shots! There is something about the colour of film though that I like better. I am sure most may find it ‘retro’ now 😉
Really stunning photos, Meredith. What a find! 🙂
