Great scan!!! So clear and sharp! I have stil stripes in the background. Lieke thought it had something to do with the resolution.

Riet, try covering the items you are scanning with a sheet of white or colored solid paper and see if that helps. It could also have to do with the software driver you are using - double check it's settings.

Perfect scan!!!! Are these all your watches? Do you have a 'thing' about being on time? Perhaps you could teach Pondy a thing or two....;p

Grimacher - these are my watches going back to 1984 (one is missing) oldest on the left. Had the one on the right since 2003, middle since 2000, left since 1996. Previous one I wore (missing) I wore for 12 years, all Seiko.

Yes I have a "thing" about being on time. I have been late since the day I was born(literally - I was 2 weeks late, and my mother never lets me forget it). It also drives me crazy. The clock in my car and my watch are both set 5 minutes fast. The clock in the bathroom is 20 minutes fast. From where I am sitting here I can see 3 clocks, 2 - 2minutes fast(for setting vcr on time) and one is on time. The 5 minutes usually works, although it's now automatic to look at my watch and subtract the 5 minutes without realizing it.

When I was in sales(for about 250 years!) I was ALWAYS terrified of being late for an appointment. Luckily, I have some sort of internal "miracle" clock that allows me to "catch-up" even when I am running behind. Somehow for all those years despite leaving late I was only late for 1 appointment!

But bottom line, the watch 5 minutes fast makes a big difference.

lieke, thank you. a couple of months ago I bought vellum paper in about 6 colors just for coloring backgrounds and filtering light for photos. Now if I could just afford a decent macro lens! :)

I think you travel a lot!

My oh my....you really are fastidious about time ;) Until I started working I didn't have a watch at all, and loved every minute of it! Now I'm always conscious of the time.

Hang on to that vellum paper...keep it safe. You'll make good use for it when you finally get that macro lens :)

I sold watches for 250 years and I remember each one of these. I also replaced batteries in watches and it seems that one on the left needs a battery. Cool idea.
Feb 24 2006 22:44 GMT PhotoPro PRO
That's why I bought the 2 on the right - both kinectic - batteries not needed!

Different time. So you never come to late. :-)

Amazing story! I never wear a watch and am always on time. I seem to have a keen sense of what time it is by the clock in my mind...
Great scan! It's fun to see what people are scanning...

I think when you are born in relation to your due date does have something to do with timing. My son was 10 weeks early. My saying about him is that he is the perfect child as long as he gets everything yesterday. Wonderful kid, just impatient.
