Monochrome #6 - Fairfax Village 1968



I took these Ektachrome slides one evening back in early 1968. They are desaturated from the orginal dark bluish slides. The location is Fort Davis Street in the Fairfax Village section of Southeast Washington, DC. It was our first apartment.

Go visit Harriet at Monochrome Weekly for more great monochrome photographs

The trees look so pretty covered in new fallen snow.

At least the snow is still the same.

Ahhhh, snow in Washington, D.C. That doesn't happen often, does it? Nice shots.

Ektachrome was great stuff, but now I wish I had shot mine with Kodachrome instead. I have a bunch of Ektachrome slides from 1966 -- I hear you. They are faded, blue and a bit dirty. Ain't easy to scan and convert to B&W.

I scanned a bunch of even earlier Ektachromes today. That was fun. 127 superslides from 1964. That's 45 years.

Bet you're glad you still have the slides. I am, but mine won't last much longer. I found fungus on a few. Can't see it with the naked eye, but you can see in the scans.
