Friday Slide Scan #4 is from April 1992: a row of dolmens in grey light in Brittany.

Dolmens near Carnace, Brittany

Around Carnac, which is not too far from Brest in Brittany, is the French answer to Stonehenge and Avebury; standing stones, but in lines (alignements), not circles. It’s a nice part of the world, the people are friendly and the food excellent; and the alignmements are first-rate.

By the way, if you’re travelling in France and can read the language, I’ve had excellent luck with Guide du Routard series of guidebooks.

Images in the Friday Slide Scans are from 35mm slides taken between 1955 and 2003 by (in rough chronological order) Bill Bray, Tim Bray, Cath Bray, and Lauren Wood; when I know exactly who took one, I’ll say. Most but not all of the slides were on Kodachrome; they were digitized using a Nikon CoolScan 4000 ED scanner and cleaned up by a combination of the Nikon scanning software and PhotoShop Elements.
