These shots were taken in 1999. I wish I still had the ladder. The beauty of wood construction.

[Update:] While composing this post I stumbled upon a website selling antique ladders here. The variety of ladders pictured is intriguing. You have to register to see the prices. Since only 11 of nearly 60 ladders are less than $1,000 I think I’ll pass on that. You can select a price category and see the ladders in that price range. The single ladder in the $20,000-$50,000 range is the Bernard Rolling Library Ladder. It won’t work for me as I don’t have a rolling library to put it in. 🙂
The camera used was a Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD91 (if memory serves me). It used 3.5″ floppy disks for storage. I took most photos at a 640 x 480 resolution. When visiting Amsterdam (not where these shots were taken) I realized how many disks I was using and had to search around for a box of 50 disks to supplement my photography. Ahh the dawn of the digital age. I was so resourceful.
