Editing was done using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I rotated the image slightly and cropped extraneous background.. Thenn I used the SmartErase tool to get rid of a couple of dust spots and the Clone tool to clean up the background. Then I increased the contrast, clarity and saturation, sharpened it a bit and lowered the noise.

  1. I remember playing with a Slinky growing up. We had stair steps that had a sharp turn and if you placed the Slinky just right it would make the turn and go all the way down to the kitchen. My Slinky was silver metal not like the colored plastic ones today.

    • I studied photography in college for one semester and we had to do photograms. You would put items on photographic paper and expose it to light for a few seconds. The shadows from the objects were recorded on the paper. Almost everyone in the class shared a Slinky to experiment with.

      When my kids were young they had a couple of colored plastic Slinkys. I borrowed them to experiment with.
