Do you remember me crowing back before Christmas about having found the perfect gift?? I finally got it delivered to my Dad in February for his 65th birthday (yes, he and my mum started young). It was a hardbound book (made in iTunes) that contained the images below (and a whole lot more) from his childhood.
My grandfather was a gun photographer and took them on slide film and they were scanned by my aunt onto digital formats. I’ve been looking at them and loving them all this time and finally got around to tidying them up a bit so I can show you!!
Check them out – even if you don’t know the people they’re absolutely stunning captures of a life most of us wont have known. I’m so proud to have inherited his love for the medium though he’d have NO idea what to make of all this digital malarkey!!
(Seriously, go for the large screen version – way better!!) and if you view them on flickr you’ll find the explanations of who’s who and what the events pictured are… and Fi… before you go looking – tell me if you recognized the beaches…
