Univ. of Waterloo EIT Building 2004
Here are some grainy slide pictures from Engineering 2 in about 1992.
A view from the library
This was a good year for fall colors and this was a very good clear day for viewing.
Oct 12, 2001
It was a hazy, overcast day. The trees are not changing colors very well. Not many are changing at once
so the fall colors are poor.
This view is from Engineering 2
From August 2001 with the new addition:
Some views around Engineering 2
From June 2002:
These pictures were taken with a 1965 Rollei camera using early 1970's vintage Kodak PXP film (kept in a freezer
for most of those years). The camera was shooting 6 x 3 (cm) negatives and those were scanned at 1200 dpi in a HP S20 slide-negative scanner.
This was the first time I've developed film in 20 years. There are some scratches on the negs and I used 220 film
in a 120 camera and the pressure plate has a sharp edge. I also underdeveloped the film slightly.
The following pictures are of a new building under construction. Note the stairs rising all 3 floors in the middle
of the building and the construction technique of hanging the blocks on the side of the building.
This last picture was scanned at 2400 dpi.
Spring 2002 - New Engineering/Math building
Pictures were taken with 1970 Trix film, shot at 200 ASA, developed in D76. Some warping of the image is due to the negatives shifting as they are scanned.
Spring 2002 - New Administration Building
Pictures were taken with 1970 Trix film, shot at 200 ASA, developed in D76.
These pictures were 1970 vintage Kodak Tri-X film shot at 200 ASA in April 2002. The
negatives were scaned at 900 dpi.
June 2002 Pictures
Campus shots with an Ansco camera
These pictures were taken Oct. 12 2001 with a 1950's vintage Ansco box camera using Kodak GPF (160 ASA) film that was 5 years past it's expirary date [note the redish tinge on the shots]. These pictures are from the 300 dpi scans of contact prints.
The negatives were slightly under-exposed. You will note that the focus is not very good. Even on the
6 x 9 cm negative you can tell that the focus is not crisp.
