  1. What sort of camera and film were you using to get such sharp quality images?

  2. The bags of spare coal are interesting.

  3. Hello Arnold. Thanks for asking. I pulled the negative for a look. This photograph was shot with Kodak Pan X. It is a medium speed film (ISO 125) with a fine grain.

    The negative was scanned by DigMyPics in Arizona (the same folks I used to restore the Rosamond slides). I used a basic photo editing program to remove scratches from the digital file. Finally, the image received two shots of sharpening to bring out as much detail as possible.

    The camera would have been the Pentax Spotmatic 1000… borrowed from my high school’s camera club. Hard to believe that was 40 years ago… Yikes!

  4. Amazing results, Peter. Thats not far off a medium graflex quality. (I used a Pentax K-1000 back then.)
