Made a GIF of Myka winking every three minutes.  (Yes, you have to watch it for three minutes to see it wink.)









Okay, okay, you only have to wait 5 seconds for this one.



Holiday card 2016

Finally got my greeting card made and distributed.


scans and cameras

Been giving the new 35 mm film scanner its first heavy assignment.  Some of the film has damaged emulsion, not real bad, but a Photoshop retouching nightmare.  Not all are bad and some will have quality image alternatives.  But it adds up to extra time.


Anyway, I found the original 4X5 copy negative of the Ratchett and Rose photogram, and I shot it with the Nikon at 14Mp, then subjected it to all sorts of Photoshop, and it came out rather well.  Not quite the original, being digital, but good enough for printing.


And I fond a few photos of me in my late 20’s up to 30.  This one was taken by Jeanne Baxter at 29, upon a return trip to visit Austin.  This was the look that won me second place in a Halloween contest for “coming as myself and having no one recognize me”.
