If you haven’t been in the garden behind the Longfellow House (and the Maine Historical Society building), then you should. It’s a nice oasis of quiet on Congress Street, fifty or yard from Monument Square, where there’s usually something (protest, disburbance) going on and where Preble, Congress and Elm Streets all meet.

I scan my black-and-white film as color negative, instead of using the black-and-white setting in the otherwise decent scanning software I use. TMAX scans a little bluish. When I edit in Photoshop I switch it from RGB color to grayscale after I’ve cleaned up scratches and dust and things. But I like the color of the film as it’s scanned. Blue is kind of soothing.
