A Few Days Gone By

Artist's Description

Quite a few of them, actually about 19,300-odd, as of today,(June 22, 2009) since this self-portrait was taken in July 1954. I was on top of a hill in the middle of the wilderness in central Quebec province, Canada, while operating a survey station for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Please note the spick-and-span military attire.
The photo was taken with a Voightlander 35mm. camera, probably using Super XX black and white film. I’m using my dearly beloved Exakta Varex 35mm.SLR, with some combination of 105 mm. telephoto with a lens extension,probably a Plus filter, and a lens hood. Having little money to spend on anything, we made good use of those Plus and Minus lenses and extension tubes,which enabled us to get better telephoto, and better macros, depending on what combination we used. Experimentation did wonders!
I can’t imagine anyone wanting a copy of this, but I thought it might be fun to post on a few Groups where it was appropriate. Now I hope the moderators agree :)
Oh yes, the original slide was scanned with a Canoscan 4000US scanner in 2004.
