    I always search flea markets for old negs. I scan them and clean them up in photoshop. I doesn't matter to me who they are it is a piece of our history!

    Do you ever search the Library of Congress. There's plenty of good photos there.

    I like to find negatives that have never been enlarged and printed. Most of the older pictures were made laying the negatve on the photographic paper and shining a light on it to expose the image on the paper. Nowdays they are put in an enlarger and projected onto paper or done digtally.

    I love water, but don't get to see much of it here in Nevada.
