Ruins of Exeter

I'm back in scanning mode, this time working through some negatives from 2000. These are from the very first weekend away I took with Lorna, and I was on the verge of discarding them as a bit rubbish, when I thought that they might look quite good in black & white. And they do, don't they?

This catches the mood of the weekend a bit better, though:

I can't believe it was over a decade ago…

Tech, 1988 Style

This is my computer desk from the late 80s – probably '88 or '89. Yes, that's a portable TV it's connected to. And yes, that's a tape deck for loading programs…

RevStan might live to note the RSC production poster just visible in the top left of the picture. And yes, there's a hairdryer by the mirror. It was the 80s, I was a teenager. You blowdried.

Just noticed – two toy Daleks by the "monitor". WIN.

Tags of Christmas Past

We had something of an eco-friendly Christmas this year. While we were clearing out Mum's house back in 2008, we found enough unused Christmas cards to last for year and enough paper and tags to last, well, two years, as it turned out.

And some of the designs were decades old. I liked the designs of these tags so much, I've scanned them to preserve them for posterity:
