Keep on Truckin !

  1. In the mid 1970's I trekked the Tahoe-Yosemite Trail (Calif) with my Calumet 4x5 camera rig & a Husky V tripod. . lots of "gear" with the pack but the 100+ negatives were worth the effort (a month). During the film development, several negs went horribly wrong, with a blizzard of white spots, in addition to the "filth" of the trip (5 hangers & changing bag). It is only with the ability to spot/correct this mess thru negative scans with my editor that now a fantastic picture of the trip is now in my hands.
    So keep those "hopeless" negatives & give them a new life with some re-work in your computer.
    First pic is what a small section of the neg looked like prior to "rework". Bill 4X5-425-001 X.jpg
     
  2. Sorry about a delay. . . V2.2 is being a Royal PITA with multi error codes & jumps into some advertising that is now appearing on the site.
    Here is the scan which will be an 11x14 on the wall in a few days. Bill
     
  3. Still more error codes (3) preventing an upload. . . what is going on??? 2k17-4x5-525-001 r9.5ks10ce bc z 11X14.jpg

  11. One question. . .one banana.
     
  12. Nice work Bill! Please post more pics from this trip.
     
  13. Here are several more from that trek, and with these, I will let the thread "mellow". Enjoy, Bill 2k17-4x5-516-004 r9.5ks13ce bc 11x14.jpg
     
  14. V2.2 is going ape with "error codes", so the picture will be a bit "late"! Now it's giving me a "29 second" wait error msg !! Insane !!
     
  15. I am thinking that V2.2 is like a cranky child. . it needs a nap or in severe cases, a "time out" in the corner. 2k17-4x5-514-003 r9.0k s13 ce zzz bc 11x14.jpg
     
  16. Finally !! Large amounts of water were flowing in the various water courses, even with the trek being in the middle of summer, and most of the trek above 7000 ft.
