I went up into the loft this morning to dig out some of our old vinyl records for Becki. She has this thing about the sound of old fashioned records at the moment
Whilst up there I found a carousel full of 35mm slides that had not been viewed since 1982. It was all stuff shot when I first got my Oly OM2n. My scanner is not too brilliant and some of the slides had deteriorated a little. I am not sure my photographic technique has improved any These two were a couple of my best mates at the time. We spent far more time with each other than with our girlfriends - a misspent youth.
And a very rare self portrait of moi at the tender age of 17. Titter ye not viewers - this pre-dates the fully developed Ramones styling that was to come a year or so later (when the above shots were taken). Notice that even 30 years ago this teenie sported the Facebook pout. I had to try and cultivate the wind swept and interesting look to counter the good looks of my brother. He used to have girls hanging around outside the garden gate of an evening...I kid you not.
