This page has larger jpg files than my page made in 2003.
The original slides were from 1979. Actually, I think these were taken in the last week of 1978, and the slides were date stamped 1979.
For a few hours, we watched the Chief cross the Straits.
People have printed some of these pictures from my first scans, but those were small files.
Some of these scans seem a bit blue. The one with the Chief coming head-on has good colors like it really was. I have an 8x10 print made long ago of that, and the colors still look good and the scan matches. It was a Winter day, only 30 seconds of sunshine all the while, with occasional snow showers and a frosty haze over the water. I was using Ektachrome slide film, maybe ASA 160. Two were taken with a 3-X extender coupled to a 200mm zoom lense.
