I’ve scanned some of my slides with my Dimage Scan Dual III. They’re here.

Here’s one I like:

It has some feeling of documenting of suburban malaise, like the movie Hundstage or some of the photography of Thomas Struth. More than that, and also similar to those two photographic work, is the way the colors and the distance make it seem like one is a voyeur—and almost a voyeur not of life but of a carefully constructed diorama of life.

I also scanned some of Stanford and my trip to South Africa and Tanzania. More are to come.

All slides are taken with Velvia 50 film and a Nikon N70 film camera. B&W are taken with a Nikon N8008s and a variety of films, mostly Neopan 400 and Tri-X 400. My lenses are a Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8-4 and a Nikkor 20mm f/2.8. I use both lenses on both bodies. It’s fairly obvious in which pictures I use which lens. The super wide-angles are the 20mm.

That’s right. I’m the big winner. Andy, you should have jumped on it while you could. Instead, it will be hung above our toilet at the Purple Zone.

How to have a long running TV sitcom

More broad generalizations from a small sample size.

  • have a random assortment of friends, with associated back story
  • after a number of seasons have two of the least related characters start dating
  • have two characters that are “meant” to be together. they must break up and have a problems but everyone knows they will always end up together but for much of the show they are not together.
  • have one “dumb” character. he says fantastically stupid things.

Bonus points if you can name the shows I was thinking of.
