Old Friends, Paul Mc Keown
My wife and daughter-in-law were walking down the beach in San Clemente, Ca. They looked like they had been on a long trek, and were deep in conversation, not having seen one another for several months. The tire tracks made a good leading line.

Paul used his Canon Elan 7E and Tokina 19-35mm to capture this image on Fuji Sensia 100. It was scanned using an HP S20 scanner whereupon it was converted to BW, levels were adjusted and a border was added. 

Donna Eaton, Lily & Rosie 
This is Lily & Rosie, my two cats. They were both adopted from my vet's office which takes in orphaned kittens. Although they are not related, when they were small they cuddled & comforted each other a lot. Now that they are 6 months of age their time is spent rough housing and they seldom cuddle. I happened to catch them one day in a rare moment of true friendship. I ran to get the camera and was surprised they were still there when I returned. I love this photo because it shows how much they are attached to each other even though they don't like to admit it much anymore. 

Donna's camera was a Canon PowerShot S50. Levels were adjusted and the image was slightly sharpened in PhotoShop.

Corrie Zacharias, Buddies
I had been photographing inside the barn, and when I went outside, I saw these two in the window. No time to change film!

Corrie was shooting with a Nikon F4s and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 using  Kodak T-MAX P3200 black and white film. The resulting  image was scanned using a Nikon Coolscan IV. Photoshop work included spotting, dodging and burning.
