    Blue collar workers went on strike during a huge snow storm. The city was paralyzed for days. We had just returned from Ottawa on the train and had to stay in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel because nothing could get up the hill. Hard to believe we are approaching the 35th anniversary!

      Are these scans from transparencies? They're amazingly good quality and look like they were taken yesterday.

      That's right. Scans from Kodachrome transparencies. As I remember I had a Minolta SLR at the time. I am slowly going through my albums of slides and bringing them to digital life with an Epson 4990 Photo scanner. But it takes ages at eight slides per batch.

      Cette série est phénoménalement bonne. Je suis impressionné.

      This brings back so many memories--as a McGill student, it seems that I mostly remember snowy streets, low light, and going up and down hills. Still remember the smells and sounds of snow-removal trucks. I'm eager to see what else you have, Colin!
