FAVORITE PHOTOS.




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.

Go for it GF

Come to think of it, why not set up an RR photo gallery on Flickr or wherever where you and others can upload fave pic treasures? Gallery for each user or something? Would have to be easy to use and view.

Tin/Carole et al: what a great idea, I've been thinking we should include photography to the blog for some weeks now but I never thought if it that way.

I would enjoy seeing more of your pictures GF. Just back from Notting Hill Carnival and kicking myself for forgetting the camera. Had a prime spot with sunshine,trees, shadows and barbecue smoke where the Mas bands turn a corner to head down to the judging point. Already enjoying CaroleB's Bristol Bike Show set on Flickr; sent a link to a Mod mad compadre in Savannah, Georgia who was immediately tipped into scooter drool. Fabulous how these points of connection can bounce round the world and back again in an instant.

Isn't it amazing what Mr Berners-Lee has wrought!
I've just signed up at the Flickr site and posted a selection but it's not showing yet.
Never been to the Notting Hill Carnival but have followed it for years and been to many similar on this side of the pond, would love to have been there.
Did Gregory Show? Who else?

Something reminiscent of Mona Lisa there - to paraphrase the song, warm and real.
