Photo Friday: My Little Helper


For my birthday I got an 8 mm film scanner so I could scan my Dad’s old films. I have a box of about 25 to thirty reels dated from 1964 to 1967 and 1974 to 1976. For some reason the dates in between are missing and nobody has seen them.

As soon as I started scanning the films Floki was right there to help.

I guess he was fascinated by the project because he spent a lot of time supervising my work.

Here is example of one of one of the scans. It is my mother, sister and I in 1966 with our dog, Bruno.

      So was my Dad. I have many of his slides but just discovered there were many more. My mother hired someone to scan them but they used a cell phone to do it. I was sent a link to the pictures and most of them were covered in dust and half of them were backwards with no indication of where or when the pictures were taken, which is usually written on the box of slides. I called my mother when I learned of the pictures and said “let me have them. I will scan them the right way.” She replied that she threw them away. That was very disappointing.

    We had a ton of 8mm films from when we were kids that my brother had converted to digital not long ago. What great memories you’ll be able to keep and watch whenever you want. ~the mom
