Scan we must





Looking at my countless slides and trying to preserve them the best way I can I occasionally get the feeling that it's an almost impossible job. But scan we must or else they will be lost as they fade away. These scans are all Kodachromes shot in August of 1972, can it be 40 years ago? Time does slip by inn what appears to be an increasingly accelerating rate. The camera was the Canon FT and the lens  was the superb Canon 28mm F 3.6 FL. The place is the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Sicily. It's a well known fact that the best examples of Greek classic architecture are found in Sicily where the Greeks built bigger and better temples that were better cared for and therefore survived in better condition than in Greece or in any other part of Magna Grecia. We Sicilians are very proud of our Hellenic roots among other roots.
