The fun of Throwback Thursday comes with the memories going back to the time the image was captured and this one was a kick to find. I had actually printed it and had it in a frame on the wall in my office going back to my Hasselblad days. I recently found a box of framed prints and this was on the top.
So, that's Tom Danielson on the bottom, Bob Thompson, then the Hasselblad sales manager for the biggest part of the West, me in the middle and Duncan MacNab, then owner of F11, an outstanding camera shop in Bozeman. In fact, we just had dinner with Duncan and his wife in Bozeman a couple of weeks ago.
Somebody said to me once, scuba diving isn't a hobby, it's a sickness! LOL Well, like any hobby you truly love, it did become an obsession. On this trip we headed to Bonaire for a week of diving.
What I can't figure out is who snapped the shutter! I think the trip was just the four of us, but after twenty years and dozens of trips, I don't remember who was with us. We used to rent a condo and share the expenses and then dive in some of the most beautiful water in the Caribbean.
Take the time to search for your own Throwback images. Then, share them on your blog. They're especially effective if they're of kids and family, giving you the opportunity to remind your target audience how important memories are to capture. Every day kids grow a little more and a professionally captured portrait is the perfect way to savor great memories.
