And with that warning I start what I hope will be an occasional blog feature, which will fall into a new category of "blast from the past." But this all comes with a caveat. While I have a pretty decent slide scanner, I am not very good at using it (working on getting better). Plus, most of my slide collection has undergone 7 international moves, and lived in the humid tropics for years at a time. There are dust, scratches, mold and who knows what all afflicting the slides. I will take just enough time to try and get some kind of a quality scan (7200dpi), but do not have time to professionally clean them first and all that. I'll then post a web-sized version on the blog.
So, I hope this bit will be an interesting and fun bit for me to add in once in a while, but please be forgiving of the photo quality and enjoy the pics and stories. And with the current cold snap, I'd actually rather be scanning slides than subjecting my current camera to the big temperature swings of being inside and then outside with a 50-degree temperature difference.
