She’s a Real Bombshell

The scanner I’ve been using for my work on film is pretty crappy so I invested in a decent one yesterday and actually got around to hooking it up at around 2 in the morning. I just wanted to do a quick test so I threw an old slide in it and made this low-res scan just to see that it worked. I think I will be happy with the scanner when I take time to make some high-res scans. This particular image is scanned from an Ektachrome slide I made in 1993. I was hiking in the desert in area that had been a practice bombing range during WWII and came across this dented-up old bombshell lying in the dirt near an extinct volcanic cinder cone. I made the image with a 24mm lens on my ME Super SLR. I just shot some images last week with the same lens on the same camera body. Now, 20 years after this shot was made I will scan some fresh negatives from the same setup and see what they look like. I can’t wait.
