not quite the amalfi coast...



Not quite the Amalfi coast but very close! It's a coast!

The photos are back from the photo lab, lots of lighthouse and coastline photos but no surf boards on roof-racks! I surprised myself with my seaside themed guess to what was on the film!

Does anybody recognise the lighthouse or coastline? I think they may have been taken in Queensland? Or NSW perhaps? Are these your holiday snapshots?

The mystery continues...

Oh I love it! The colour on old film is just spetacular isn't it? Are you going to do anything with the shots? I bet they'd look amazing printed up on canvas or on a calico fabric to really bring out the old school colours.

Caroline said...

Wow, these are so timeless. I like that about Australia, the stock standard wooden picnic tables, the family touring car, photos of the sea...

And I love how technology can help to immediately pinpoint in the world where the shots are taken.

Absolutely beautiful colors, I agree.

Nice work Angela.

I came across an undeveloped film once in an old camera I bought too!

It was such a lovely surprise.

PottyMouthMama said...

So so cool! I love that CurlyPops knew where it was!

Kerry said...

Wow! How beautiful! The colours are gorgeous. I wonder why the original owner left the film in the camera? Oh... such a mystery!

smileybella said...

How entrancing! One could write a novel about such a film. Now there's an idea...

Lark said...

Love them!x

sarah-jane down the lane said...

Gosh the colour is amazing! What wonderful pics, absoloutely no clue about where they are from though!

I have just realised a rather joyous coincidence, if you have a look at my blog on the side bar there is a picture of my dresser, if you look closely you will spot a little lady you might recognise!
