A few pictures
from a weekend trip to New York City in Dec 2005 taken with 7 Mpixal Cannon
S70, a couple of pictures of Boston's Back Bay taken in 2003 with 2 Mpixal
Cannon S200, and a few scans of 3d objects I did with my trusty (now obsolete)
HP-5470 scanner. Only the last (vintage) B&W photo is not by me.

8 feet long) of extraordinary quality sitting on a bench outside during
winter activities in Bryant Park.
