thanks for your kind comments - and thoughtful, complete description...
i enjoyed the process and this image... i'm glad you did too.
unfortunately i'm technologically challenged and about 5 years ago made the considered choice to eschew all things digital, where possible. a luddite! the truth is my scanner died, probably from disuse. i scanned only 1 photo in it's lifetime, and few other items. i haven't replaced it!
i did recently consider the desire to post photo's here - to get input/advice, for others to see, etc. knowing myself, i realized if i'd bought a scanner, i'd inevitably "need" a newer, faster, better - printer/plugin/software, etc. - leading to more expense. the next thing you know i would have bought a digital camera, egads!. so i haven't!
thanks to all in the exchange - i continue to learn and be inspired by your pictures, efforts and comments!
