Shots from my time in the Navy

I've decided to start uploading some photos of my time in the Navy. Unfortunately I only really started using a camera for the last few years, so I don't have nearly as many photos as I'd have liked to have had; but thems the breaks I guess.

I've decided not to do much work if any, on these scans. Apart from cleaning up glaring dust and scratches, I'm leaving them raw.

So, for better or worse, here's the beginning of a few choice shots I'll make public. Might be an insight into life in a blue suit for some people.

Part of Boat Party for RHIB launches:

Yah, got my new scanner on the weekend and I'm in the process of recovering years of printed shots. Takes time but very rewarding ;)

But then again, I find it near impossible to turn the bf off, unless I say his mum's name, a lot. And call him his mum's name.

It was an older Minolta SLR ('96-ish model). Cheap, plastic body and a crap lens. The printed film hasn't lasted well.
