Old Small Pictures

I took some pictures in 2001 in Peru with a small film camera.  I have since lost the negatives and prints and digital files that were made from scans.  All that I have left are the images in my blog and they are only 800 pixels in the longest dimension.

I have been continuing to see what I could do with them and have made a couple of color prints that are now on my wall; but I continue to see if I can make them better.  This morning I tried B&W and I think I like these better.

You have to consider that they were originally 35mm film negatives that were printed and then scanned and then downsized to put in my blog and then extracted from Word Press.com and then converted to B&W and then upsized to 8×10 at 300 pixels per inch and then reduced again for use in my blog as you see them above.  Ridiculous isn’t it, but since it is unlikely that I will ever go back to get better images, this is the best that I have been able to do so far.  I may go back and rework the whole set of them since I think this style of B&W fits the old architecture.
