Facing the past

Facing The Past

In my youth my family travelled a fair bit; by my late teens I had visited ~45 of the lower 48. Most of that travelling was done in a 3 seat station wagon; the third seat facing backwards in the rear of the car. We all took turns in the ‘way back seat’. Frankly it was my favorite spot as I was able to read or just watch the World fade away behind us.

I’m not sure where this shot was made; it could be anywhere from W. Virginia to Washington.

Rock On!

2017 photo100 – #6

This shot is from my first-ever stadium rock show, Boston, in 1979. The film stock was Illford HP5 ‘pushed’ beyond any resonable (at the time) speed of 3200 ISO. I remember not being able to hear too well for a few days and hearing some guy called ‘Sammy Haggar’ as the openning act.
