I was back in Midland by nightfall on Tuesday, so as to be ready for a 7am flight to Dallas, and then via JFK New York, back to London Heathrow at 6:40am the following day.
For the technically minded, the photos were taken with my trusty Minolta 700si, 28-105mm f2.8-4 Sigma lens and Minolta 100-300 f4-5.6, using Fuji Velvia 100ASA slide film. The slides were scanned on an Acer 2740S film scanner at 2700dpi, and saved as high resolution jpegs. Minor adjustment to a few images were made using Adobe Photoshop 7. This and the daily narrative pages were made simply using Microsoft Word as the html editor, and the picture galleries were again created with Photoshop, and then edited to add any additional return links. Editing and gallery creation were done on a home built Pentium 3.2GHz system, all running under Windows XP Pro.
I’d welcome any comments, reports of bad links, problems with loading or viewing, so I can improve the site. Just email me. Don’t rely on this being the email address for ever, it probably with change as spammers pick it up and I get flooded with junk.
