Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shiny

Cee’s Challenge topic this week is Shiny

metal slides
Slide Mounts

My grandfather Opa left behind a large box of photographic slides. Hundreds of them encased in shiny metal slide mounts. Fitted into 1940’s and 1950’s era slide magazine cases. For viewing in a slide projector.

I inherited this box of treasured memories of the many travels he and my Oma embarked on…before advancing age and illness ended their adventures.

After unearthing the box in our basement during the let’s-get-ready-to-downsize years, I removed all the slides from the magazines…and mounts. Viewed them on a lighted slide sorter. And kept a sampling of my favorites (eventually inspiring one of my first blog posts…slides!)

I let go of the shiny metal….
