We had mainly black and white photos, but there are some surprising ones in color.
My dear son, Russ, took the originals and had Walmart's genius people put them into a DVD and then showed them to all my offspring at my 70th birthday. It was probably pretty boring, especially with the strange sound background the Walmart guys had added.
So last night I pulled out the video, which hadn't been of any interest for years, and decided it would be nice to transform it into some stills so I could share them (and archive them) here.
Ever try to take pictures of a TV show? Right...the black bar of death crossed most of the attempts, even when the shot was paused.
No, I didn't want to copy into a video format either. I may try that sometime, but not yet.
Anyway, out of my attempts, and from the first 12 clips, I did get some good shots, though the originals were a bit fuzzy. I don't know if this was original resolution, or not having a good TV screen. And I've since reduced the resolution so I can post them here easily. Ever notice how long it takes to post 2m photos here?
So I'll give you first a series of clips of my grandparents.
My parents and myself were visiting from Dallas, TX.
Their sons Chauncey and George (my father) were having a good time playing with various cameras, and included catching each other telling stories. Since the camera wound down after about a minute, they were short stories! More next time!
