It's high school and this is pretty much where photography started for me. That's me in the bottom left at Riverside High School in Painesville, Ohio, where I grew up. Although, according to Sheila, I haven't grown up yet, so maybe it was just a time when I was supposed to be maturing. Don't mean to offend anyone, but what cracks me up the most is that we all needed to grow into our ears!
This was the Photo-Service Club. What I can't figure out is the headline. "Is the Public Good" makes no sense. It was a great little group. The school had a small darkroom, a few cameras, mostly twin-lens Rolleiflex, a couple of studio lights, and we had the freedom to shoot pretty much anything that seemed of interest.
The fun of Throwback Thursday is always the same - it's that trip down Memory Lane. It was a simpler time and so much less complicated than thinking about what kids deal with today.
So, have you done your TBT trip down Memory Lane yet this morning?
