I must say I'm not enjoying being part of a vulnerable age group while an invisible virus lurks outside. And the cameras have not seen daylight since February. So what to do? Answer: clean up the archive and scan more photographs to turn them into screen-lookers that can be flung into cyberspace.
The little $49.00 A4 flatbed scanner I got from ALDI still works so off I go. It takes about 10 minutes to cook up a scan, strain it through an old version of Photoshop that a friend set up for me, and get a screen picture that looks like the actual print held up next to it.
I'm up to 375 scans so far with lots to go; boring but virtuous work. I now have sympathy for those hard working film users who must scan negatives to get a positive to look at. Maybe Bazz8 is right in his post "The Print is what matters". Maybe it's all just pictures anyway. Just belly-aching.
