Digging Up Some History - Old Images Scanned

I recently dug out a bunch of old slides that date back as far as 1979 and "scanned" them with a dSLR (by putting each slide on a lightbox and taking a photo of it with a macro lens). Here are few, with links to more.

On a hot summer day in 1984 at the San Diego Zoo, people were feeding ice to the elephants.

A young cheetah hiding in the grass at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, in Escondido, California. Taken sometime in the late 80's or early 90's, shot through a chain link fence.

Taken from the rear seat of a double kayak on San Diego Bay, as the afternoon fog rolls into the Bay, in 1990.

Fishing boat sitting in the middle of Xlendi Bay, on the island of Gozo, Malta, taken in June of 1980. The water was so clear that you can see the the shadow of the boat on the floor of the bay. The colors of the Kodachrome slides on these next two shots look as good today as they did almost 30 years ago.

Another Maltese fishing boat, this one at Marsalforn Harbor, also on the island of Gozo, Malta in June of 1980.

The view leaning out the window of a late afternoon train somewhere in central Sicily, June of 1980.

A quiet afternoon view in Interlaken, Switzerland, taken in May of 1990.
