Russia, Circa 1970

Below are a few pictures that I scanned from slides to photos and transferred to my Mac computer from my mother-in-law’s old slides. You’ll notice that they aren’t “perfect” because there are small bits of dots throughout. The dots are dust particles. The slides had a lot more of them and even though iPhoto has a “retouch” option that allowed me to block them out, it would have taken me a lot of time to get all of the dust “dots” off.

But — overall they came out pretty good, no?

I’m hoping to create a Youtube video with the almost 76 slides of Russia from the 1970’s. I’ll let you know when that happens. I have other countries that I’ll be posting pictures of also like Iran, Afghanistan, Greece, etc. from the same timeframe.

Between cooking, yard work, regular “work” and hoping to learn how to sew on my new Brothers sewing machine, well, I’ve got my hands full. But they’ll be coming so stay tuned.
