Thanks christos-greece for the visit.... I have a question though...


Is the National Archeological Museum of Athens (picture # 181) still existing or they merged it with that newly-built museum at the foot of the Acropolis?

Like these photos. I myself visited Germany in 1985. This was my 2nd time to continental Europe. We had an Toyota F family van and drove to Hamburg, Göttingen, Miltenberg, Wurzburg & Munich.

Old photos may be blurry, have some shadows and not be perfect like todays 16Mpix digital photos, but they are nostalgic and artistic.

Back in the 80's. A summer vacation meant 24 kodakfilm photos in my AGFA camera,after processing about 15 were considered somewhat succesful.

This summer I took about a 1300 photos +about 1 hour of filming, I brought 32 Gb of memory, so my habits of taking photos have changed.

Back then, it was a little cheaper and less crowdier.
I lost 4 rolls of 36 shots as I misloaded them.

I don't know what you mean with cheaper, but photography back then, was a rather pricey hobby.

A 24 or 36 roll of photos was the first expense. That would be about 7-8$ for one roll, depending on the quality. I mainly bought FUJIFILM which was cheaper than KODAK especially the gold-verision. It made no difference with my camera anyway.

Then it was the processing which costed about 15$ for 36 photos. That was quite a lot for a 15 year old back then.

I remember that slides were even more expensive. I took some rolls of slides, but they easilly deteriorated. Many of my slides were lost because they were exposed to the sun, dust and they also received scratches. I regret I ever bought slides, but back then you didn't know anything about the
future digital photo possibilities.

@NordikNerd - honestly, I don't remember the cost of the film and the developing but I knew I used kodak most of the time. when I said cheaper,
I was refering to hotel, food and fare - though if we consider inflation, maybe, it would be just of the same footing as today's.
you're right, the passage of time made my photos/negatives lost their quality. now with digital, I'm not sure how long sd card will maintain its quality.
