India 1984.

This new topic got me thinking and as it's gloomy today I went up in the loft and got some of my old boxes of slides out.
These are taken with the E5 and some slides on the end of a toilet roll.

Lake palace hotel,Udaipur.


Lake at sunset,Udaipur.


Rajasthani woman and baby in a hut in the desert.


Ranakpur Jain temple.Probably one of the most peaceful places I've ever been.


Market ,Jaiselmeer.


And just to prove I was there.This was when I first had my hair cut short by order of SWMBO for the trip.If you look carefully I think I've got a 'tash as well.


Brings back lots of memories.Must go back sometime.
All taken on the OM1,either the 50mm F1.8 or 28mm F2.8 and Kodachrome I think.

Re: India 1984.

Really good shots, and well-scanned with your toilet paper. Must say it wipes away the opposition!

Re: India 1984.

Nice shots Andy. I would agree with you on the nostalgia front.
Have you thought of offering to demonstrate the new use of a toilet roll to the manufacturers.
You could clean up with that.

Just a bog-standard bit of kit.

Re: India 1984.

I hope Pete (Snaarman) doesn't read this thread. He'll be most upset after spending all that time making his slide copying device!

What marque of toilet paper, by the way?
