Friday Slide Scan #9 is from 1988, three views of Tintagel Castle, whose name alone is magic.

The connection with Arthur is tenuous, but I heartily recommend a visit if you ever get to Cornwall, it’s a very rewarding walk around the castle and down to the beach, and that whole corner of England is pretty, end to end.

Legend has it that it was on this kind of rocky coastline that the “wreckers” would erect false navigation lights to lead ships to grief and then plunder them.

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.
