View across Mitchelton

from Kumbari Cres. This was scanned from a 16mm slide that my father took sometime around 1970 (at a guess based on what else was in the box of slides).

Obviously, I didn't take this, what with not actually being born at that stage ;-)

The remaining slides can be seen on my home gallery.

See where this picture was taken.

    16mm slide? i am intrigued... did he have a minox or something?

    not born in 1970? you are younger than i thought...

    nice to see you using that scanner btw - nice pic too. old slides fade to some gentle colours

    The box says: Minolta 16 Color Slide. And the cardboard slide holders only say "Minolta 16" and "Minolta Camera Co. Ltd. Japan"

    I have no idea what the camera itself was, I assume it was a Minolta but that's based purely on the slide stock.

    Yep, I'm a relative young'n ;-) 1974 to be precise.

    And yeah the scanner has proved very useful for these sorts of things, and renewed my interest in film too. :)

    They came to me with a heap of stuff I had stored at Mum & Dad's when they moved. Still pretty neat though :)

    What a nifty looking camera Greg. Quite "James Bond" but then all the 16mm cameras I've seen are quite tiny.

    Yes it was a Minolta 16mm camera. You could hide it in your fisted hand, or shirt pocket. Basically it was like a spy camera.
