Follow this LINK to a set of photographs shot in the fall of 1978, by me, in the Hawaiian Islands. The original photos were 35mm transparencies, mostly Kodachrome 64; the camera was an old Honeywell Pentax with manual focus, manual shutter speed, and manual f-stop. Lenses used were all Pentax Super Multi-coated Takumar, focal lengths including 20, 35, 50, 100, and 200 mm. Scenes from the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island of Hawaii are included.
The original transparencies were each individually digitized using a small PanDigital scanner; each scan was ‘cleaned up’ (recovered) and restored via JASC PaintShop Pro 8.0 with goal of bringing each and all back to as near their original quality as possible. Restoration perfection is, of course, elusive, to say the least, but well worth the effort, as this series of 43 images hopefully attests.
