Old colour photo

I recently scanned faded colour slides, two of them in here.

The film is SAKURA Colour reversal (ISO 100) made by KONISHIROKU Co.,
later it became Konica, Konica-Mminolta, then disappeared. The scanner
I used is Epson V700 using ROC (Restoration of Colour?), Digital ICE tech,
and 3,200 dpi. After that, I used PSe to enhance/saturate colour more and
de-dusting by stamp tool.

Oh yes, I took these pix using Asahi-Pentax SV with 55/1.8, which I no longer
have, but I recently bought 55/1.8 at ePay by nostalgic reason. Very Happy

The photos were made 1963 March, I was much younger then.




These Zen temples were built in early 15-th centuries, they are still there.

I will put up more photos in organized way. That Pentax-SV was sold to get
a wool jacket, for I was becoming aware of decorating myself for a sex appeal. Laughing

I became a senior citizen at the end of last month.
So I was 19 then when the above photos were made,
Colour film was relatively new thing, I rememer this was
the first time I used colour (actually slide) film, that is why
I kept two sets of slide film boxes.

I was only a plan in my parents mind that time. Nice images and good to see them.

I love old photos and slides!

But the world still had to wait 7 years before I saw the light Wink
