Lane and the bearded dragon

Hello Lane,

After looking at the photo of the bearded dragon I shared with your class, I decided to rescan the original 35mm slides with a newer, better quality film scanner. Because you liked the bearded dragon, I thought I would share the new scans with you first. Slowly, I am scanning all of my old 35mm slides and photo negatives. I have already discovered long forgotten memories through these little windows to the past.

Below is the original scan of the bearded dragon slide made using a lower quality scanner...

The new scans give finer detail and are truer in colour. This little guy was on the road as I drove to my first full time teaching school where I was the only teacher. Below is a photo of my first full time teaching school. I think you can get the idea it was a long way from towns. Children at the school lived on sheep and cattle stations and the closest town was 100km from the school.

    Hello, Ross!

    Thank you so much for commenting to me on our blog! You were right. Kangaroos can get hurt but their chest and stomach areas are very strong. You are so specific with the information you write and the pictures you take. I really enjoyed the pictures you took for me of the bearded dragon. I think it’s cool that you’re scanning all the pictures! You left amazing an comment for me and for my class. Thank you for telling us more about our favourite animals. It really inspired me for the bearded dragons, Ross! You come up with amazing information. Thank you!

    From,

    Lane 🙂

      Hello Lane,

      All the knowledge we gather in our life isn’t of much use if we don’t somehow share with others. The best thing about sharing is you end up learning more along the way. 🙂
