Greetings, on my post Testing, testing, I said…

“I’m coming around to the idea of shooting a little more colour in my photographic life”

Think my memory is getting a little short as I get older!

I shot colour negative film two years ago and this image below is from France.

I’d forgotten that I had taken this picture in the village of Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei, because it wasn’t a very interesting image to me at the time as a street photography image. Now with the all new 2021 lock down regulations in England, I’m unable to go anywhere other than an hours exercise or for work… shopping, that’s the wife’s department! So photography has gone out the window for the foreseeable and so I have been looking though previous negatives to see anything I’ve missed or discounted before. I found these colour negatives from our trip to Normandy in 2018.

This is the near the middle of Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei, Normandie France and it is said to be one of the most beautiful villages in France, small, not over commercialised with a couple small cafés this village well worth a visit. Located in the south of the Parc naturel régional et Géoparc Normandie-Maine and lies on the River Sarthe 13 km from Alençon.

  1. I’ve been scanning old slides, and came across a roll that I recognize half the images, but have no memory of the other half. I haven’t looked at them too closely so expect some recognition when I do, but since they’re 40 years old there’s no guarantee. The cache of appointment books from those years may yet prove their worth!

    1. I started keeping a notepad in my camera bag to keep a rough guide of what I have shot but like you I have work from years back yet no notes or memories of when or where they were taken. Part of this has come about because of the masses of slides from my late father who also never kept records nor marked his slide mounts and now I have no living relatives who could tell me either.


      1. My grandfather was a bookkeeper and auditor and kept an index of all his slides. His collection that I now own is immaculate 😁 My dad’s is sort of organized, and I thought I knew what was in mine! Time to dig in and start making some lists.
