SLIDES WERE FIRST SPRAYED WITH COMPRESSED AIR TO RID OF DUST PARTICLES AND OTHER ELEMENTS

THEN SCANNED WITH A SPECIAL NEGATIVE/SLIDE SCANNER PICTURED ABOVE-"THE SHARPER IMAGE". GOT IT ON EBAY FOR ABOUT $60.

IT IS AN OLDER MACHINE AND WORKS ONLY WITH WINDOWS XP. LUCKILY I HAVE AN OLDER LAPTOP WITH XP ON IT.

ONLY PROBLEM IS AFTER MANY SCANS IT HANGS UP. IT THEN NEEDS UNPLUGGED AND PLUGGED BACK IN. IT AUTOMATICALLY DETECTS THE CONTRAST/EXPOSURE IN THE SLIDE THOUGH NOT ALWAYS SUCCESSFULLY

TOO BAD THIS SLIDE HAS SO MUCH FADING, FOR THE WIFE OF THE BROTHER OF THE HUSBAND IN THE FAMILY, AT FAR RIGHT, IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL.

NOT SURE WHERE THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN, BUT IT MUST BE AT SOME POOR RELATIVE'S OR SOMETHING. CHECK OUT THE JUNK IN THE BACKGROUND.

THE OLD MAN AT FAR LEFT LOOKS LIKE A FARMER. HE MAY HAVE COME TO THE PARTY DRESSED OK, BUT HE CAME BY TRACTOR, INSTANTLY ALIENATING HIS CLASSY RELATIVES

WHO MIGHT THIS BE? AN AUNT? A FRIENDLY NEIGHBOR? THE WAITRESS FROM THE LOCAL DINER? NICE VINTAGE COLORS HERE, THOUGH.

ALSO, IS THAT A WIG? OR IS IT THE STYLE OF THE TIMES? DISCUSS.

THE BROTHER AND HIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE. YOU CAN TELL SHE IS REALLY COMFORTABLE AROUND HIM.

THIS IS A VERY INTIMATE PHOTO. THE STOCKIER BROTHER GOT THE SOMEWHAT SLIM WIFE, AND THE TALL BROTHER GOT THE HEAVYSET WIFE.

ARE THE HOSTS SERIOUS HOARDERS OR WHAT?? LOTS OF TACKY COLORS SURROUNDING THE COUPLE HERE, THOUGH IT DEFINITELY ADDS CHARACTER TO THE COMPOSITION

THE WIFE, PLAYING SHOOT THE MOON

NOT A BAD PHOTO DESPITE, OR PERHAPS BECAUSE OF, THE SHARP CONTRAST..

ALSO, IS SHE DRINKING BEER STRAIGHT FROM THE BOTTLE?

THE WIFE, WITH...THE HUSBAND? LOOKS DIFFERENT HERE.

HE LOOKS LIKE HE RUSHED STRAIGHT FROM THE STAR TREK SET AND JUST DID NOT HAVE THE TIME TO CHANGE INTO NORMAL CLOTHES.

DISAPPOINTED AT THE STERILE COLORS AT THE RIGHT SIDE OF IMAGE.

CUDDLING THE DACHSHUND...

JUDGING BY THE POSITION OF THE DOG THEY MAY BE RIDICULING THE DOG'S GENITALS--->"OHH....HOW TINY!!"

CHECK OUT THE PLAID PANTS. THOSE ARE HALF-INCH THICK POLYESTERS. THEY CAN PROTECT YOU EVEN IN CASE OF A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION.

NICE COMPOSITION, JUST WISHED SHE WAS IN FOCUS.

DON'T SHOOT AGAINST LIGHT SOURCES, CHANCES ARE NOT IN YOUR FAVOR.

SLIDE IMPRINT: MAR-70

TERRIFIC DOMESTIC SETTING. VERY MOODY AND SPONTANEOUS-LOOKING. THEY SEEMED A LITTLE DISINTERESTED.

EXCELLENT COMPOSITION AS WELL. WERE THEY GETTING FED UP WITH THE PICTURE-TAKING? "HONEY....AT THE DINNER TABLE?"

THIS MUST BE A VERY GOOD FAMILY. THE BOY AT LEFT HAS GOOD POSTURE AND IS ATTENTIVE, WITH HIS HAIR DONE NICELY. A RELATIVE MUST BE VISITING.

SLIDE IMPRINT: MAR-70

NICE PICTURE. NICE DETAIL ON THE GRASS. GOOD EXPRESSION, CAPTURES HIS PERSONALITY WELL.

THIS DOG IS A REAL WINNER, OR RATHER..."WIENER"?

HEY! IT'S UNCLE PHIL!

DUDE COULD HAVE BEEN PRETTY SLICK....IF IT WASN'T FOR HIS *BRIGHT RED SLIPPERS*. OR MAYBE HE'S THE SLICKEST OF THEM ALL BECAUSE OF THEM! I MEAN, WHAT MAN FEELS COMFORTABLE ENOUGH WITH HIS MASCULINITY TO POSSESS THE COURAGE TO WEAR THOSE??

AMUSING

EXCEPT THAT THE DOG IS NOT ALL THAT INTERESTED IN PLAYING
