Something old, and new

All right, folks, time for something a bit different - something old and new. Old, because these are pictures taken well before the digital age (1970s), taken with an old Olympus film camera, but something new, because of the process of digital restoration and conversion. These are mostly taken from trips out west, and so are necessarily heavy on scenery. The first one is taken at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, in Colorado - really an astonishing place. The next one is taken at the Grand Canyon from the lesser known North Rim. The third is approaching Zion National Park, in Utah, which remains spectacular, as always. The fourth is of some wildflowers in Zion National Park. The fifth one is the Little Colorado Gorge, as the little Colorado River joins up with the Colorado at the Grand Canyon. The next one is of some Native American kids selling jewelry somewhere in Arizona. And the last one is actually from Washington State - somewhere in the hills. Hope you enjoy these.


  1. Magnificent American nature scenery! Makes you catch your breath at the vastness of the landscapes and feel like a hovering condor. Beautiful!

  2. I like the picture with the kids selling jewelry and the first one gives me the image of giant headstones.

  3. Thanks again for commenting. I've got a bunch more that I'll be posting over the next few weeks, but we'll be going up to the Canadian Rockies in a little over a week - so watch out.

  4. I have always been intrigued by the Grand Canyon. It always makes me a bit philosophical.

  5. hey, I remember those kids! They're all grown up now. It was on the Navajo res. driving between the north and south rims...33 years ago! Found your site while fooling around on Facebook. Happy anniversary...hope you make it past 18 this time : ) Seriously, I really wish you both well. I'm happy and healthy and a COTA again in Flagstaff. Namaste, old friend.
