Wow! Two promises in two days…. I checked out my Digital Film/Slide Projector for my pal Judy Dykstra/Brown over at Lifelessons, AND in the same swell swoop…or is it fell swoop?… found some of my ancient slides of ancient archeological sites as I had promised my buddy BadFish!
I will do a proper post about these pyramids soon, right now the goal is to show that my old slides really can be resurrected and restored by even ME…klutz that I can be even after thirty-some years of computer-practice.
The purpose of this post is to show the results of my test of my scanner converter…yes it works, and yes I love it! It took me about four times longer than it should have, and I had a LOT of hassle getting the photos into the post.
No, that is not me up on that pyramid…no way. It may or may not be my late husband, who went up part way.
These shots were taken in 1996 at the Teotihuacan archeological site near Mexico City. This particular occasion marked the last time Bob and I went to Mexico together, although I made several more trips by myself.
These are not Aztec pyramids, but were constructed by the Teotihuacanos, who predated the Aztecs by centuries. The city was a hub of commerce and trade that extended even down into what is now Guatemala. National Geographic did a great magazine issue featuring this fascinating city.
There are hundreds and hundreds of photos of the pyramids. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=teotihuacan+pyramids&FORM=IARRTH&ufn=teotihuacan&stid=1a1f9c4b-ec11-aeee-db7b-def752eff0af&cbn=EntityAnswer&cbi=0&FORM=IARRTHds I’ll check it. I just googled Teotihuacan pyramids and got it.
OH yes! the link works…many of the photos I looked at on the site have been taken much more recently. There has been on-going reconstruction work at many of the Mexican sites for many years.
