Throwback Thursdays : picture quality 1972-74

Most of my Throwback Thursdays pics will be from way-way-back-when … when we were young … when photo developing was not that good … when I decided that ‘matt’ finish photos were great (as it turns out they’re not .. years later 😦 ) … when many of my photographs have turned brown due to poor quality 35mm films … when there were only 12, 24 or 36 exposures … when you had to be rather choosy on what you wanted to photograph … when if someone wasn’t smiling, turned away at that precise moment, or closed their eyes, you couldn’t click another, and another, and another until you got the perfect shot … … … …

Todays ‘way-back-when’  pics are …  still focuses on  Jeanette .. when we, our little family, were three

How sad is that .. to have all our most of our ‘memories’  badly printed 😦   I’ve kept all of the negatives.   Those with perfect colour can, I suppose, be reprinted but the yellowed/browned ones can’t as the negatives have also turned brown 😦   Very poor quality 35mm film
