More B/W Negative Shots

I have finally processed more photos from the black-n-white negative strips I found at the Goodwill.
Here is another shot of the quarry(?).

There were several landscape shots ...

And here.
It looked very desert Southwest ...

There were a few more "people" pictures too.
Don't you just love the look on that kid's face?

There was also an entire series of shots of this guy playing tennis.

Don't you just love his shadow?

If you have scanned some old (non-digital) photos, please join us over at Jane's "Vintage Weekly"!

And it's been a long time since I've participated in "Shadow Shot Sunday"!

The Garden Magazine, Nov. 1917

The magazine had no cover, and was ragged and stained.
Still, something about it caught my eye, so I paid my 25 cents and came home with a treasure trove of old advertisements and a glimpse into the world of nearly a hundred years ago!

In total, I came home with tattered and coverless copies of this magazine from 1913, 1914, 1915 and 1917!!!

All for a dollar.

The first thing I scanned from the pages of my treasure was this "Stewarts Iron Fence" advertisement. Because ... It's time for "Fridays Fences"!

Found in a Book ...

I love books!
Reading a book ... a real paper-and-ink publication ... is like losing myself in another world.
Or visiting an old friend.

Sometimes I find treasures tucked between the pages ...

Notes, cards, bookmarks ...

I'm not sure I will ever be comfortable with reading books "electronically".
Because there's more to books than just reading them!

More Found Negatives ...

One of the things I can't resist snatching up at the Goodwill Outlet Store are negatives.
It's like finding buried treasure!

I picked up several black and white negative strips the last time I was there, and have been working on digitizing them.


Some of the shots look like they were taken at an old quarry.

Maybe someone's vacation shots?


There were also several views of this old fence.

A late addition to "Fridays Fences"!
