I've been doing nothing but scanning slides this week. All my life I shot everything in the Ektachrome slide format, now all I have is that dumb Canon SD400, but I have thousands of slides and a Nikon Super Coolscan 5000ED slide scanner. So I've been scanning mostly photos of kids but a few others somehow sneaked in, [including 2 boxes of Bob Marley concerts that I'd totally forgotten about] . As I scan 'em I assign 'em to folders but occasionally one or two escape and wind up lurking on the desktop; This is one such. I think of her as 'The Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands' I shot her in Kingston in the '80's, I think she's gorgeous.
I saw her at her window, half raised my camera and gave her a 'May I' smile, she gave the slightest assent and I shot just one shot, wish I knew how to get it to her.
If nobody objects I might post the occasional favorite photos as they turn up.
