It's pretty awesome to see these old slides that are so full of family history.

This is my dad fishing when he was about 10.

Immaculate - that's my brief description of the two slides posted by Colton and arnold. They are both reminders for me to pay close attention as I use the roll of Velvia 50 currently loaded in the KX.
KX, an excellent camera. Do you plan to use any particular lens with it? Anyway, I look forward to the results.

Normally I try to use the same lens for an entire roll. But I recently picked up a SMC 400/5.6 and mounted it to get a feel for it. Only one shot so far with that, and a few others with another lens. And I've already forgotten the lens which was previously mounted - M50/1.4, I think. I'll likely return to that lens if I ever get to got out again. The local forecast has rain for the next four days. At any rate, I'm hopeful I'll have something worth posting after I finally shoot the 36 frames, send it out for processing, and get the results. Maybe by April?

Fantastic shot!

I would suggest a moodier - more contrasty or darker, version.

Camel market
You can believe the high amount of trading going on there, in amongst all those beasts you can see small groups of men conducting business.

Very well seen and taken, I just love the quality of the morning light here too.

Those are some woderful vintage slides!

This one is of my mother in law, from the late 50's, Kodachrome



Here's a Kodachrome I took in '72 with an Olympus Pen FT half frame



My grandma, again the 70s, probably Agfachrome



Pop Photo's September 1957 issue had the Most Photogenic Girl In the World as picked by Ed Sullivan and shot by Peter Gowland - they included 600,000 color Super Ansochrome slides (World's Fastest Color Film - Exposure Index 100). Luckily the slide was still in the magazine, though it - and the magazine itself - hasn't been stored in the dryest most archival way.

I actually lightened up the file a bit because I thought it might appear too dark on uncalibrated monitors.

That film can provide a lot of details on a half frame!

I too bought that issue and it came with the slide. Looks like my version was in very good shape compared to yours.

Unfortunately it is a copy of an original and as careful as they say they did the copying, I am afraid it lost quite a bit in the process.
I don't know how that film's color characteristics under that lighting condition but it looks like it kept it's color quite well I think.

Those old mechanical beasts hold their own don't they. Burrard Street Bridge - good one.
