Be aware though, once you do it it's like eating one potato chip.
And it is great fun.

The photo you left here was a 35 mm and that is what Ken scanned. If you would like you can send the 35's to Ken and he can scan them at work.
I don't think Jack has a scanner.
I would not recommed the disposable digitals for taking photos of solids. We have not tried them but Ken doesn't seem to think they will work for this, but he may just be holding out for a new camera.

And those potato candy bars you sent were also calorie free. Can't figure out how I keep gaining weight.
They were mighty good .

I can proudly say that I do my fair share to help the economy in Idaho. I don't know what I'd do without potato chips and baked potatoes from Idahoan potatoes!
Take care, Jeanette

Now I know what is happening to our Idaho potatoes. You've heard about the shoemaker's son and the shoes. That's now it is in Idaho with the potatoes. Really, I don't know anyone I would rather have them go to. lol
I'm not taking a chance on sending more Idaho Spud bars until it cools off.
Off to enjoy a big steak and a baked potato with butter, sour cream and chives. Oh well, add some cheese and bacon bits too.

How do I get Ann into the kitchen to cook? A baked potato and steak sounds inviting.
Maybe I will have to drive to your house to get a good meal.

Anyone else interested in sharing pictures of their collection?

The peacock & sphinx are in a small cabinet which we removed the glass and took the picture outside.
Most of the solid photos we have posted that have their own small cabinet we have done this.
The rest we take the solids outside and arrange them there.
We have not figured out a way to take them in our big cabinets with out seeing Ken in the photo or a giant glare.
If you have a room with absolutely no light reflecting on the glass but enough light you don't have to use a flash it might be possible.
If just shooting one solid you might try putting the lens right on the glass. I just find it easier to take one solid out of the case. Angle is important also and we can't get in position to get the right angle. This is why we gave up after many , many tries and just go outside.
If anyone comes up with a good suggestion please,please let us know.
Maybe Jack's new camera can overcome this problem.

I'd suggest you lock the doors to the computer room, the solid rooms and leave only the kitchen door unlocked. Surely she'll get hungry too.
You just come up any time and you can have all the steak and potatoes you want. Maybe we'll even have potato pancakes. lol
The fresh peaches are just coming on and we'll go out to the orchards and pick all we want. Apples will be out next month. How about apple pie or peach pie? With ice cream, of course.
Ann can come too!

Ken will be right there as soon as he gets out of the dog house. Very decorated dog house at that.

Have you tried getting a filter for your camera lens? I have one for my 35 mm camera. I don't have a digital camera. But you might want to check for one in a camera store.
