I've finally managed to get a web gallery posted and I'd love to share it with everyone. Please feel free to comment on any or all of the material there. I'll be updating it frequently as I scan more of my stuff over this summer.
p.s.-some of the banners that tripod adds seem to take a while to download. In Netscape I just hit stop after a little bit. Then the link images will appear at the bottom.

I think you have a small problem either with the scans, the compression of the images, or the size of the picture holders.
Your pictures promise with being outstanding. Congratulations.
Have a great time

You really have some great professional-looking photos. The shot with the fireman in front of the flames and the yellow truck are excellent. These seemed to display fine for me. I liked the black and white images even better with the expectation that the originals are better than the ones on your site. These do seem to have some compression artifact. You may want to post your workflow, scanner type, etc and let some of the digital gurus examine for errors in technique. I would also try much larger dimension shots on the site if possible. The ones on the site are too small. I usually set a height limit of 500 and a width limit of 700 pixels. These will view fine on a monitor set to 800 x 600 and look good at higher resolutions too. Your photography is excellent and is worth better representation digitally. I found myself leaning toward the monitor to take them in. Make them bigger!
