You never know what I'm going to find when I go wandering through old files or boxes of photographs. Here are six classics from the past. They're senior head shots. Starting in the top left it's Lori Nordstrom, Bobbi Lane, Dane Sanders, Chuck Arlund, Me and Roberto Valenzuela.
Five years ago I put out a request to a whole bunch of people to send me their high school senior head shots. I was doing a post back then on my original blog. I honestly don't remember what I did with them, but I'm counting on these five friends above to be laughing along with me today.
If there was an award for best hair, it would have to go to Chuck Arlund. I think I'd pick up best unibrow under those glasses. I threw my own senior shot in to simply show I could handle a little throwback pain with the rest of them.
As always on Throwback Thursday, old photographs take us all kinds of different places. I know I'm the oldest in this group and my good buddy, Scott Bourne, will tell you Matthew Brady took my photograph just after the Civil War! However, that doesn't change my ability to look back at old images as if it was literally yesterday. One thing I know is true, time really does fly when you're having a good time!
Note: If anybody else wants to share their senior headshot, it's got to be at least 10 years old to qualify. If you still break out eating a candy bar, you're too young for Throwback Thursday. Send me your head shot, (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll start a series.
