Memories Found

I was going through old slides today to scan some taken while I was stationed in Crete in the 70s. I found this particular slide very interesting for the camera box inside my locker. I knew I had a Pentax, but wasn't sure of the model or lens. I took thousands of slides while stationed in Europe with that Spotmatic II with the 50mm f1.4 lens. That was a great camera. Most of the slides that are over 36 years old are still in very good condition. That is a testament to the quality of the camera and of kodachrome and agfachrome film made in the 70s. That camera is the reason I still use Pentax.

Excellent memory. Wish I could say the same, I used various "cheaper" bulk film during the seventies. All slides kept in glass mounts and left in Kodak Carousels and then in their cardboard box. I have a lot that look crap now because of colour casts etc. I dread going through 10 full carousels .......
