Turning Negatives Into Positives

These images are from 1992 — ’93 at the latest — of my darling daughter Katie enjoying an orange at her grandma’s house in Sherman Oaks on a rainy day.

A brief and marvelous moment in time, newly rediscovered thanks to the negative scanner I’ve long wanted and just got. This was the first random negative set I pulled from among the hundreds that have been hibernating in a file cabinet for almost as long as they’ve existed.

The Flickr photoset of the above images are viewable here.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
