Found 1966 negatives!
In 1966 I was a young Merchant Marine Officer in the service of the K.N.S.M or the “Royal Dutch Steamship Company”. We would frequently make trips to the West Coast of South America, picking up and delivering freight to harbors in countries from Columbia to Chile. Recently I found some 2 1/4 negatives that I took during one of those trips. I think most of the pictures were taken in Chile and maybe some in Peru. Although I did take some photographs from time to time I did not consider myself a serious photographer at the time. Looking at these early photographs I am surprised to recognize the way I “see” when I take photographs nowadays.
