A few words about the images in the galleries:


While most of the color images have been scanned from 35mm positive transparencies, some of them were scanned from analog prints.The depth of some colors and the blackness of the shadows varies between those two, with the deeper tones in some cases a little lighter in the images that were scanned from the transparencies. All of the black-and white images were scanned from analog prints.


For the transparencies, I used a Prime Film 7200 35mm slide scanner; it has performed well enough but has tended to give a color cast to some of the images, affecting different colors and densities within those photographs in different ways. I have worked -- and am yet working, it would be fair to say -- on better balancing the color in these various galleries' images. If you happen to end up 'seeing red'  or 'feeling a little green' as you scroll through the photos, for that I apologize.












Beginning the 'Occasional Journal'...

I have never before written any 'blog' posts.  To be honest, I have to say that the word itself is an ugly little spurt of sound and that I do not like it.  Let's just call this effort the 'Occasional Journal' for want of any more inspired title.  I'll try addressing a variety of things here from time to time -- "...of shoes and ships and sealing wax; of cabbages and kings."
