Animals on my old slides

Sun Jun 28, 2020 10:31 pm

Hey,

Very rare, but on a few old slides, I find animals!
Guess it's dust mites (used google translate for that, hope it makes sense).
My slides haven't been stored in perfect conditions, so some mold appears now and then. But these animals, weird!

This pic shows it. It's very much magnified of course. It's the scan, 6400px wide at 200%.
Fortunately it's possible to edit it out.

Kind of gross...
Think it's a dust mite?
Also, extra points for who can guess the airline and plane type :)

Are you sure Kesjee hasn't been round to your house? :duck:

Swissair MD80 indeed :)
The shot is in queue for screening.
Left half is sharp but nose of plane is a bit soft, I know. Guess it's a scanning issue. But I don't know how to fix gradually increasing softness.

Still don't know what the bug is though.

Keesje hasn't been round here, he seems to prefer an ordinary fly anyway :)
