Back in the day when I use to travel, they didn't have digital cameras! So, I scanned a few pictures that I took with my old 35mm. If these aren't allowed, just ignore.

Island of Capri in the bay of Naples


Taken from the Eiffel Tower, notice the shadow


Can't remember where in Italy this was taken. The court was fan shaped. The little girl was so cute feeding the birds.

Haven't been anywhere exotic lately, except for in the local rice fields and swamps. So here's 3 shots from today's hike at Caw Caw Plantation.

Lake Oroville CA. This was 2 years ago. You can see the original water level mark at the top of the banks. I hope it's filled up more since I took this. Most of this water gets piped to San Fransisco. :shocked:


Lake Madrone CA.

In recent years our different hobbies have kept Rita and I from going places together much for vacation. Mine involve Living History events at historic sites to do cooking demonstrations. Now just because a place is a bit old, don't mean they are bad places to stay. Take this, the ward room at Ft. Hartsuff, near Ord Newbrassky nice old army cots with cotton matresses to pad them.



I was the first one there that time and got first pick, it's the one with the hat on the bed post and the quilts on it.

This is Hollenburg Pony Express Station near Hanover KS about 6:30 on a nice summer day, one of my helpers fetching water for the morning coffee:



My favorite is Rock Creek Station near Fairbury Newbrassky and the second one west of Hollenburg. This is where Wild Bill Hickok killed Dave McCandless in 1861 and got the story wrote about him in Harper.s Monthy in 1867 that gave him the nickname.

As it looked when Wild Bill was there:



And as it looks today from about the same place:
