I know I shared this in a post years ago, but I don't remember when or where...and that might be part of the fun of Throwback Thursdays. Some memories are too good not to go back to more than once! I also forgot about the shot of "Two-Gun Tony Corbell," and me as a wrangler walked us into position for a photo opportunity.
We were doing a Hasselblad sales meeting at the Westward Look Hotel in Tucson. I'm guessing the year is sometime early 90's. I wanted an authentic looking period shot of the old west with all of us. I'm laughing about how serious I took the group portrait. I remember being upset you could see Mike Bowen's Nikes, but never thought twice about my Porsche Carrera sunglasses!
There's also a fun sidebar. This was the Hasselblad team, but the photographer who we hired captured the image with his Bronica gear. Plus, forty years later at a high school reunion, I found out I went to high school with him! He just didn't connect it at the time, which goes back to three years in high school where I was "Steve." (I got tired of all the Skippy Peanut Butter jokes, but down deep I've never been a Steve.) He just didn't know he knew Skip.
Well, it's Throwback Thursday, and you need to have some fun with the opportunity to dig out and share a few old images. And, if you don't share them on your blog to remind clients how fast their kids are growing, at least find a few for your own enjoyment.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
