When I was 19 or so, I loved taking pictures. I also wrote poetry and read books extensively. I was not a careful reader and much of what I read I now think went uncomprehended.
I also played a lot of music then. At the age of 19, I played trumpet and guitar mostly. I played a bit at the piano but mostly had acquired very little technique. This came later.
I did enjoy wandering around and taking pictures. Yesterday cleaning out a closet I ran across a couple albums of my pictures I have made. Today I am putting up pictures that date strictly from the seventies or so.
I would put up more, but it’s taking forever to scan and then upload. I put up some stuff on Facebook, mostly for fam. These old pictures here are pictures I love but am not sure how much they appeal to other people. Perfect for the blog, then.
More stuff next time.
