NEGATIVES REDUX


OK, so now I'm going bananas with these old images. Bear in mind that these are scanned from negatives that are 40 years old. My school artsy days.

I'm wondering will we be able to open our jpeg and raw files forty years from now. Don't be optimistic, I have a digital camera that I purchased when they first came out around 2001 and the software to extract the files is obsolete.

Thanks for stopping by.

Notice the Mayor White campaign poster. Somewhere in New England. I actually have some images of Mayor Kevin White marching in a protest march in downtown Boston which dates this image to circa 1975.
