I've recently inherited a large number of slides from my Grandfather and my Uncle, who have unfortunately both passed along. I'm attempting to catalog and scan each of the slides, archive them in folders, and share with my family. There's a lot of damage to these slides over the years, some have stayed in amazing shape. Kodak Kodachrome slides hold their quality through the years, these slides have retained the quality and color very well. The images span over many years, from the 50's up to the 90's. It's been an enlightening experience to say the least. I feel like I'm learning more and more about my family's history by going through this long process. And I've found a connection to both my grandfather and my uncle that I didn't know about, that we shared a passion and appreciation for photography. I'd like to make a series of posts from my findings. I'm going to start off with a couple local shots of the Yellowstone River back in 1973, and a fishing shot of my Grandfather, James E. Smith, doing what he loved best, fishing the Yellowstone river. Enjoy.
