This is dated February, 1990 and it seems to have something to do with the preparations for the Economic Summit that would be held on campus that July:
It’s been raining here for about a month and in fact it is raining as I write this. There’s a rumor going around that it will stop raining tomorrow but I can’t afford to believe it.
Bonus: This afternoon a thoughtful reader brought me a set of Campaniles from the 1920s that had belonged to her uncles. In one of them I found these leaves. I love that I will never know what, if anything, they meant.
A black & white photograph in 1990? I would think that is unusual.
Still all film for the ’90 issue.
“The first widely commercially available digital camera was the 1990 Dycam Model 1; it also sold as the Logitech Fotoman.”
B&W could be processed in the ‘Nile’s darkroom.
The first photojournalism-ready digital camera was the Kodak DCS 100 in 1991, based on a Nikon F3. That 1.3 megapixels would cost you $20,000. They sold 987 of them.
Thanks for the enlightenment.
