Feeling bored one rainy day I hauled up two large bins of photos, slides and negatives from the basement just to have a look around. To my surprise, I liked quite a few of the images!
However, I really wanted to scan both the negatives and the slides so I had a digital version to work with. On a whim I contacted the library and they had just received a slide and negative scanner to lend out. Perfect!
I spent the next few evenings feeding strips of negatives and slides into the scanner, making a 6MB version of each image. They are not perfect scans, but now I finally have a digital copy of the images, some of which I have never seen any larger than 23mm ✕ 34mm on my light table!
I’ve shared some of those scanned images below.
