What do you do when you suffer from a shutterblock? Well, for one thing, you don’t take any new pictures. Instead I find myself going back to the past. I happened to come across a bunch of old black and white negatives last week. I took the pictures back in the mid 70’s and I developed them myself. Those were the good old analog days. Printed them myself also, but I seem to have lost the prints. Couldn’t find them anywhere, just the negatives. I also have a Nikon Coolscan scanner stacked away somewhere, but it only has 2 SCSI connectors. Based on the horror stories I read on various sites, I didn’t even try to connect to my PC. Simply took the negatives to the local camerastore who did a fine job scanning them for me. It was downhill when I received the digital copies on a memory stick 2 days later: familiar editing with Photoshop and Silver Efex Pro. A lot of scratch and dust removal. I’m quite handy now with Photoshop’s healing tools!

The cat I used to have some 35+ years ago. Who could have thought its picture would one day end up on a site on the world wide web…
