What's a person to do with scans of slides that are kind of lousy? Throw them away? That would be wasteful. Share them on a Sunday, when hardly anyone looks at the blog? Good idea!
Both of today's scans come from a lot of slides from February, 1961. There are some goodies in the batch, but these kind of lousy.
Like this one, showing a still fairly new Cascade Peak, as seen from the deck of the Columbia. I just want to scurry up those ropes in the foreground. For some reason this photo is very gray and ugly, even though (in theory) I have hardly met a photo of Cascade Peak that I haven't liked.
This might not be the worst photo of Mickey Mouse's floral portrait, but it is definitely in the running. Not quite in focus, out of plumb, and just sort of "ugh".
