A Few Random Shots

Just a few miscellaneous snaps from the Provence trip. When I first started scanning these slides, I noticed that many of the photos were out of order. I lost track of some the places where they were taken.

I have no idea where I was when I took this lizard's picture.

Then, just the other day, I bumped into my light table and tipped about sixty slides onto the floor. Now they're even more out of order. For some photos it doesn't really matter, like Mr. Lizard up there. But there are buildings, towns, and landscapes that I can't identify. Ken's been able to help with some. Still, that trip was fourteen years ago.

This restored mill is somewhere near Taillades on the western end of the Luberon mountain, near Cavaillon.

I've been able to piece some of the more obvious series back together, but there are some shots that I can't identify. Oh well. Such is life.

This is the Roman amphitheater at Orange. There were workers and machinery inside setting up a stage for an upcoming performance, kind of interrupting the imagination. Even so, it's an impressive building.

  1. OMG... you must have uttered some major profanities when tipping over your light table! Well, even if the photos are out of order, they are enjoyable all the same!

  3. The 28 sites of Provence trip were very enjoyable. It's great, for a new viewer, to be able to go back and see it all while sipping French wine...

  4. I always find scanning slides such a bore! I haven't done that for quite a while.
    Yours are in rather good shape, I think. And I too find it difficult to put them back into order.
    They are pretty good-looking though, yours, I mean ;)
    Claude de Vieux, c'est mieux !!!

  5. claudia, I'm glad that the new categories help. I did another one yesterday, "southwestern france trip."

    claude, scanning is slow going, but I think it's worth it for me since my slide projector is broken.
