Quarantine

…day 16.

This was the result of a half-tripped shutter on the Mamiya (which can sometimes occur if you don’t press the button hard enough) during one of our daily “Forced Marches” (don’t kid yourself…that’s what they are).

It required +10 exposure compensation on the scan, but otherwise, this is exactly how it looked.

…and this is basically how life feels right now.

Tuckered out.

mmkay…Apparently people don’t like B&W pictures of dogs lol.

Here’s the sequel.

Hope you’re all doing alright, and staying safe indoors.

Warming Up

Given what we are all dealing with right now, this seems extremely distant.

That being said, it feels a little “tone deaf” to be posting vacation images.  I am trying to lead as “normal” a life as possible at the moment, but I realize that things are a little widely unhinged.  I don’t mean to sound insensitive, but I hope these images bring a little escape. comfort, and happiness.

Take care of each other…things will be “normal” again one day soon.

The Difference

Well, the ‘ole V600 died yesterday.

I though about picking up another one, but after much hand-wringing, decided to spring for a V800 instead.

This is the best I could produce with either scanner.  Same treatment in scanning, conversion (NLP) and post-processing.

Worth the extra?
