Happy SUNday! Isle of Wight – 1987

Scanning some Kodak Kodachrome slides from my trip to England in September of 1987. It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirty years since I was there.


This lovely home was photographed around mid afternoon under tricky lighting conditions. Kodachrome 25 isn’t at its’ best in less than full sun but I believe the colors are appropriately warm given the circumstances. Little post production of the image apart for some minor cropping to remove the edges of the slide mount and to tone down the highlights to bring out more details in the wall in the bright sunlight. Taken with my Canon F-1 using my favorite Canon wide angle lens (FD 24mm f/ 2.8).


Iconic symbol of England. I think the red has held up well on the slide after all these years. Only minor tweaks were needed in post production (removing the slide mount edges via a small crop). Kodak Kodachrome 25 taken with my Canon F-1 fitted with my Canon FD 24mm f/ 2.8 lens. Looking back on this image after all these years I can’t recall why I didn’t capture the entire booth on the right. I just remember that I liked that the two leaned together at the top.

I use a Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II for my scanning.
