Monaco – Monte-Carlo 1986

Some recently found images from a short stop in Monaco and the French Riviera in September 1986. Original images are from my Canon F-1 on Kodacolor film – scanned with a Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II. The prints are on satin finish paper which does not scan well – at all!



Casino de Monte-Carlo.


Monaco police caught in casual mode.




The TVG that I did not take from Marseille to Paris!

At the casino, I was invited for a change of clothing as my casual American attire was too casual for the likes of the casino. Nice clothes – and they were happy to store my camera gear for me and watched us US Navy Sailors like hawks!

Wonderful port visit overall – we were anchored out off the coast of Cannes along the French Riviera and travelled to Nice and Monte Carlo.

Thanks for your visit!

    1. I agree. Our eyes are becoming accustomed to the digitally sharp images that are all around us. I love shooting with film and I have a few simple digital cameras but the camera that still takes 75% of all of my outdoor shots is my Samsung Galaxy S4. Simply amazing what it can do. Very nice blog you have by the way! Chris

      1. Thank you. As someone who learned my chops in the analog world in which HD seemed like an impossible dream, it’s still hard to grasp that a phone can accomplish things it can. Obviously, there’s still a primary role for creativity and, above all, looking analytically and critically at the shot, not simply relying on the machine to make the photo. A very interesting time to be working.
