What's a fella to do with those scans that don't quite meet his high standards? That's right, I have high standards, what's with the snickering?! I think I will unreject them and put them all in a single post, and bring peace and harmony to the world.
First up, a blurry photo of the C.K. Holliday, circa 1956. If only this one was nice and clear, it would be quite a beauty, and unusual with the white Frontierland fencing in front of it and the grassy (weedy?) berm behind it.
Another common problem with old photos is that they can often be too dark. This one is a textbook example (and I've lightened it up considerably); the river looks like it is filled with India ink, and the trees on shore have been soaking up that ink into their leaves and branches.
This one is a real snooze! The Peoplemover track passes above the entrance to Tomorrowland, and our photographer snapped a photo of the flower beds below. They probably looked very vibrant and pretty in real life, but the film stock has faded to a strange pinky-purple tone. Blech.
This Cascade Peak pic isn't really that bad, but it is kind of dull. Still, it's a nice look at the waterfalls I suppose.
Stay tuned, because there will certainly be more unrejected slides to share someday!
