I love traveling and photographing Festivities. The Hooker’s Ball occurred in San Francisco in 1979 and was shot with Kodachrome. I’ve been scanning Kodachrome and Ektachrome 35 millimeter slides shot in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with the Nikon Super Coolscan 5000. The black and white photos have been scanned on a flat bed scanner to digitize them. I currently shoot a Nikon D300 and D300s.
