Dubrovnik in May of 1979

Discussion in 'Film Forum' started by CRavsten, Aug 13, 2009.

  1. I took this picture in Dubrovnik, Croatia in May of 1979. Then it was part of Yugoslavia. I was wandering the narrow streets of the city and noticed the boy with the soccer ball watching me. Taken with a Contax RTS, 50mm f1.4 lens on Agfachrome, converted to b&w and given a sepia tone.

    I recently discovered all these old photos I took in the 70's and 80's. Once again, I can't help but think they would be lost if taken digitally. As a result I'm doing mostly film these days.

    That old slide took to digital pp nicely! Very cool shot, and interesting that it's 30 years ago. The kids probably 38-40 now.

    Your post made me look at a map of Croatia. Dubrovnik is in the extreme southwest, on a thin strip isolated from the rest of the country. Interesting. Nikon Cafe is just like geography class!

    That's a great image. It would have been a good image without the boy, but with him and the ball, it's outstanding. Good job with the conversion, also. Looks like a scene from the 30's.

    Regards,
