In an old box, I found several negatives, with some fungus and in bad condition … but with the most beautiful memories of one of the many trips of my father.
One day reviewing some old boxes at home, I found some old b&w negatives, it had some fungus, I washed them and began the scanning process.
I found a nice surprise, the first negative scanned, was from a trip when my father was a seaman in 1971, on June to be precise , in this travel he have visited most of Europe, and these negatives were from Rome.
I was surprised by the beautiful compositions he did and also the exposure he got. I ‘ve checked the negative and it was a Agfapan, I haven’t too much more information about the iso, and as my parents told me, was taken with a Konica camera, they lost it, and they didn’t remember the model.
I was so proud of those pictures and to know from where my love for trying to make beautiful pictures came.
These negatives are a treasure to me, one of the heritage in live that I ’ve asked (as well as old vinyl at home) there still some negatives to discover, and also some 1982 snapshots.
What I like most is that I had not even thought born yet, or rather, they didn’t think to have a baby, but I am who enjoy more than anyone being able to see how Europe was 3 decades ago.
