Scans of my first photos... simple nostalgia
« on: June 22, 2018, 10:49:56 AM »

Three scans of black and white prints that I took and developed way back in the early 1970s. The mats are warped and yellowing, so I thought it best to preserve what I could in digital format. The first two were taken around 1971-72 in Southington, CT, my hometown. The barn was just off of Meriden Avenue, a few hundred yards from the intersection of Savage Street. I don't know when the barn was demolished, but there are town homes there now. The tree, I think it is an oak, was off of Flanders Road on the west side of the town. The third photo of the father and son in their inflatable on a lazy Sunday afternoon was taken in Storrs, CT in 1975, I think in late April or early May. I remember that because I was a senior at UConn getting ready for finals by doing everything but studying (at least on that date).

Obviously, not the 'best' art, but a nice blast of nostalgia nonetheless. I hope you enjoy them.

Best,

Bob

Hi Bob.

All good.
My choice #3, #1, #2.

Unfortunately, when I was growing up we barely had food to eat, let alone a camera. Wish I had some memories of my grandpa and ma. Something to be cherished.

Best.

Thanks Fursan. I was very fortunate that my parents gave me Canon FT for my high school graduation. I used that camera extensively up through the early 2000s, and still have it.

I've been on a nostalgia binge of late, and published this book of photographs depicting my mother's side of my family: http://www.blurb.com/b/8602514-the-jakob-guterch-family. Only one of my own photos (the very last one in the book), but plenty of memories.
