THE ANALOGUE YEARS

Over the past few months I've been using a film scanner to digitise my archive of old negatives and transparencies, on the basis that I just don't have enough space to store them any more (apart from the fact that I got rid of my last enlarger and projector a very long time ago).  It's been fascinating to remind myself of people and places I thought I'd forgotten forever, and to reminisce about things which seemed futuristic at the time, such as this 1976 VHS camera, in a shop window I hasten to add.  I was a Betamax man.
