Many thanks for previous votes and comments and for all those kind user wards, I was thrilled to receive them. Something a little different today, these are some shots taken many years ago by my late father, we have found piles of old photos and slides, while sorting the house after my step mums recent death. My father processed all his own shots and slides, blacking out the bathroom to use as a studio. The first two, the lead about 35 years ago and v1 about 45 years ago, were from slides which I put on a light box and photographed. The last one from an old print which I scanned, I've done some processing in PS. my Dad wild camping in Scotland, he and my step mum used to carry all their stuff, and use local transport to get around. We now have to sort through all the photos and share them out with the extended family.

Great set Sylvia - love them all. I wouldn't want to have carried your Dad's tent, dry, or worse still, wet. GrinGrinGrin

This is how memories stay alive. It's amazing to think that out of millennia of human civilization it's only the last few generations have been able to keep hold of the past like this.

A lot of work ahead but a fascinating journey.
The scenery in V4 makes the carrying of the tent etc so worth while.
Lovely memories Sylvia, wonderful images.
