Goofy Girl


Ye Old Beams, England, 1986. This one is for you Dave. I don't have any background on this photo but it sure is a good one. Sorry Aenea, I just had to post it...couldn't resist :-). View Larger Size from Flickr.

In case anybody is wondering, 'Ye Old Beams' was the name of our house in England (in Chalfont St. Giles).

Salt Mines


Saltzburg, Austria, 1986. Kenneth, Dad, Naomi, Me, Aenea, Eden. I thought those outfits were so cool when we had to put them on before we went into the salt mines. I remember feeling like I was the 'Karate Kid'. View Larger Size from Flickr.

Brian Head, Utah, Christmas 1975. Aunt Kay, Naomi, and Kenneth. It's funny how the two adorable kids are looking directly into the camera and everyone else is into the game of Trouble. I assume the twins are two of the boys at the table. Also, don't miss the shirt in the upper right of the photograph. You may have to look at the larger version of the photograph to read what it says. View Larger Size from Flickr.

What Is Wrong With This Picture?


England, 1979. Well, I am lying on the ground behind the tire of a parked car, Kenneth is leaning on barbed wire, and it also looks like there is some under-age drinking going on. :-P View Larger Size from Flickr.

Baby Me


Ok, I missed posting a picture yesterday, so you get two today. This is me some time in 1979. View Larger Size from Flickr.

The Twins


Brian Head, Utah, Christmas 1973. The little versions of Uncle Scott and Craig...don't ask me to identify them individually. Can you tell them apart? View Larger Size from Flickr.

Maidenhead, Berkshire, England, Summer 1979. All I can say is...Wow! Nice outfit Kenneth. View Larger Size from Flickr.

Here is what mom said about the photo:
"The people in the picture other than our immediate family is my Aunty Molly (your grandad's sister) and her husband Den. Molly is still alive but Den died several years ago. I think Kenneth's outfit would have been lots better if I had just put on plain dark blue shorts. Oh Well. The picture was taken on a trip to England and we were in Maidenhead, Berkshire."

Independence Pass


Colorado, 1978. Mom, me, Aenea, Naomi, Kenneth (left to right). This was taken somewhere near Independence Pass which has an elevation of 12,095 ft. Dad said I got my first sunburn on this vacation. I'm guessing I was around 4 months old since the vacation was sometime during the summer. Follow this link to google maps to see the area where this photo was taken. View Larger Size from Flickr.

Also, just to give you guys an idea of the detail of these scans, the following is a crop of Naomi from the previous image (i.e. the crop is shown in the original scanned resolution). This isn't the sharpest of the slides I've come across but you get the idea:

More Cuteness


This was taken by Uncle Scott at the same time as the last picture so the puppy is Eleanor. The focus is on the shoulder area, not the face, but I think it gives the photo an interesting look. View Larger Size from Flickr.

Circa 2000. Eden and Hanah (left to right) and also Eleanor, a guide dog in training. I believe this picture was taken at Uncle Scott's house near Portland with his camera and lighting equipment. View Larger Size from Flickr.

All of you know that I've started scanning our collection of family slides that spans 40+ years. Since it will be time consuming to scan all of our slides, I decided I would frequently post some of the scanned pictures here rather than make everybody wait until the end of the project to see the results. Not all of the photos will be professional-quality shots, but I will choose a mix of the better ones along with other photos that the family should enjoy...or enjoy making fun of :-P.

Anyhow, post comments, memories, etc. about the pictures and enjoy looking at them!

Everyone Else:

For anyone else that stumbles upon this blog, I should mention that I did not take any of the original pictures. That credit goes to my parents who took most of the pictures with six kids in tow.

For the technically inclined and interested, the slides are currently being scanned with a Nikon Coolscan 5000 slide scanner which handles 35mm positives and negatives. The original scans are about 20 megapixels each, so they have been scaled down for this blog.
