1999 Bonnie Brae Scottish Festival
Highland Games

June 5, 1999 at the Bonnie Brae School, Liberty Corners, NJ

This is the eighth year Frank and I have attended these games, volunteering through Telcordia Technologies' chapter of the Telephone Pioneers of America. The following pages present a few scenes from this year's festival.

The Games

As a volunteer, I spent most of the morning manning the children's Sand Art table, so I don't have photos of the individual piping competition; in addition, I only have photos of the beginning rounds of the dancing competition, and only a few photos of the heavy athletics. There's really so much to do that it's almost impossible for one person to get to everything...

Most of the photos on these pages were taken with a Kodak Digital Science DC-120 camera at highest resolution, processed with MGI's Photo Suite II software, and saved in .jpeg format. The remaining photos were taken on my Konica FT-1 35mm SLR camera with ZYKKOR MC Auto 135/2.8-22 and 200/3.3-16 lenses, using Kodak Max 800 print film (my usual favorite for shooting film; it has absolutely incredible latitude!), Seattle FilmWorks ISO 200 film, and Konica VX-100 print film.

If by some small measure, my photographs inspire others to attend the Games or to otherwise contribute to the Bonnie Brae School, I will have done my little bit of help for the day.
