From the start of yesterday,
Thursday 7th, the Isle of Man entered another Covid-19 lockdown period,
initially scheduled to last for three weeks. Obviously this is going
to curtail my picture taking opportunities, so I'm starting a project that
I've wanted to do for quite some time, scanning in photo prints and slides.
The Island Images website only started when I moved to digital photography
in 2000, so this is a chance to show some of my earlier pictures dating
from when I moved to the island in 1990. There will be no particular
order to the photos as I don't have dates for them, I'm putting them in
a separate '1990s' gallery but new additions will always be notified on
these monthly pages. Starting with some snow scenes, there are ten
new pictures in 1990s Gallery One.
There are sixteen new
pictures from the 1990s print scans in 1990s
A selection of pictures

bright and calm, if a little on the chilly side with temperatures only

more 1990s pictures but I'm getting towards the end of those, with just
