That was a time of sleepless nights, shock and confusion; trying to build things that didn't have instructions.
I do remember the last time I used glass mounts for transparencies though.
It was a very long time ago, and I still have a scar from breaking the glass and bleeding on the film.
That was the problem with glass mounts, they broke easily, and then often damaged the image.
Fortunately, this random slide didn't get broken and was sent to me by Kathleen Riley from Vintage eye.
It's someones baby, a nondescript stranger that could be one of mine, except the photo's of my children were taken on digital cameras.
My images, instead of being enveloped in a dangerous sandwich of glass, are hiding away somewhere on plastic discs; also trying not to get broken.
