On the Saturday that is the anniversary of my birth, a digest of blog posts from the week now ending.

Stephen Dowling of Kosmo Foto has started a new site, World on Film, to highlight world travel photographed on film. I contributed to its debut this week. Read Route 66 on a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye

A French town, a once-bombed church, and a visit to New Orleans, all leading to a connection to the destruction of Hiroshima in 1945. If you think all things are not connected, you will question that belief after reading Heide‘s post. Read One man’s journey to Hiroshima

I was born after all the TV networks started broadcasting everything in color, but not before there were enough color shows that the syndicated reruns didn’t still need to be in black and white Ken Levine remembers the “wow!” factor of a show converting to color in the 1960s. Read Oh wow, it’s in COLOR!

Here are this week’s camera reviews and experience reports.

    Congratulations on being featured in “World on Film,” Jim! Clearly Stephen Dowling has excellent editorial taste — and I loved your wistful, nostalgic piece. Ditto with Ken Levine’s memories about seeing TV in color (especially his comparison between owning a color TV then and owning an IMAX theater today). It’s kind of crazy to consider how much technology has evolved since we were kids, isn’t it? Heck … since 2010! And finally, thank you for featuring my Hiroshima post. I always puff my chest out a little extra-proudly when you like my work. Happy Saturday, and cheers from one of your Minnesota Roadies!
