Bardowie Castle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bardowie_Castle isn't the fanciest of castles, but it's special because I once lived there :). Unfortunately it was during the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981–82_United_Kingdom_cold_wave when we rented the top floor of the "mansion" on the left, while the nearer part of the building is the actual castle. There is a loch in front of it and the ice was so thick you could drive a car on it, so very mixed memories. It's a scan of a print and I've no idea what camera it would have been, but guessing either the Oly Trip or my Praktica PLC2.

Well I have no idea how this slide got into this state but hey it adds to the character of an old film shot taken over 50 years ago.o_O Tried to reduce the contrast in Photoshop but some colours start to fade and don't look natural. I think I've posted this years ago and at the time IIRC some one said "it's the wrong way round"?
Pentax S3 probably 50mm lens

I've probably shown this before. This is a shot I would really like to take again, but do it better. It's Tantallon Castle on the cliffs of East Lothian, east of North Berwick, taken from the (almost inaccessible) cove just to the west. Tide has to be in the right place to climb round the rocks to here!

A very few choices boil down to this, Fort La Latte, scene of the showdown between Kirk Douglas and Tony Kurtis at the climax of The Vikings, maybe a Lubitel or Seagull camera using Kodak CP 100 6094 film, whatever that is. N135_006.jpg .
Scanned in PS using Epson v700, probably.

I'll post the short listed pictures in another thread.

That's great castle shot Peter, unfortunately you've missed the entry date to get in the voting.

Keep a look out on the forum, there'll be another new/old film challenge very soon.
