Kerkennah – A Tunisian Island (Part Three)

8

Sunday 23 March, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Fishing was the main livelihood of the islanders, and taking a camel for a day, or a pony & trap to the north-western villages was always an interesting adventure, taking in a few old military ruins along the way for good measure.

Sunsets were to die for off the island of Kerkennah. I took a few, but that was in the days before the freedoms of digital photography or even a half decent camera. Back then one never had a clue what the camera had really captured, or not in the case of a spoiled film or two, until collecting the packet of 4”x6” snaps from the chemist a week or so after being ‘back at work’.

  5. I like the old snaps. Going to pick up your pictures from Boots was such a lottery. I can clearly remember the huge disappointment of opening the packets and the sudden realisation that they didn’t contain the perfect pictures that I had imagined that I had taken!

      Or a spoiled film… all blank. I worked at Dixons when I first left school: summer holidays season was the best when it came to checking out the photo packets returned from the lab for collection 🙂
