Friday Slide Scan #6 is from April 1992, in the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park on the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. One of my favorites, pure Prairie winter.

There’s a bit of film grain in the picture, but I still like it.

In the spring of 1992 I moved from Waterloo to Vancouver, driving one-way with a nice new Acura full of stuff (my wife flew). I turned it into a conceptual-art piece, stopping every 100km (or maybe every hour, I forget which) to take a picture. Got quite a few interesting ones and the whole sequence is fun to look at; one problem is that I was a little over-enamoured of the car and thus a few too many shots are Acura With Primeval Forest and Acura Against Majestic Mountains.

Images in the Friday Slide Scans are from 35mm slides taken between 1955 and 2003 by (in rough chronological order) Bill Bray, Tim Bray, Cath Bray, and Lauren Wood; when I know exactly who took one, I’ll say. [In this case, me.] Most but not all of the slides were on Kodachrome; they were digitized using a Nikon CoolScan 4000 ED scanner and cleaned up by a combination of the Nikon scanning software and PhotoShop Elements.
