As promised, here is the first batch of rescanned slides using my new dedicated film scanner. These are from June 2001, pre-911. Funny how that phrase “pre-911” has taken on a meaning onto its own. These were in June 2001. I came back to New York, on business again, in October – 6 weeks after 911. I also have some pictures that I will post from then, but i simply can’t post all of them as they are deeply personal and emotional. My scanner has handled most of these slides very well. I was shooting Fuji Velvia 50 slide film. In short, I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t understand the narrow exposure latitude of slide film, and therefore exposed them wrong. I’ve never had good scans of these until now. At least they’re presentable.
