Digby's pictures scan better than the ones in Schette, but not really
very well. I keep trying to figure out a way to use a film camera to
take good pictures of both, but I don't have a camera that will take
really good closeups. Most cameras just aren't set to take something
under 3 feet, and no one seems to have a SLR with a closeup lens.
