Strange nostalgia! I don't remember ever seeing one of those machines -- whatever they were called-- and I had to ask around if anyone remembered them. As a kid, I was always suspicious of a test if the page didn't stain my fingers with that warm, light blue or purple…

Red Rover- life lessons at recess

red rover, red rover, let the skinny kid come over

When I was nine years old, I began swiping my dad's old Ricoh camera with the fixed lens. He always seemed to have Kodachrome slide film in there. Guess what I got used to shooting? Pop had pretty much stopped shooting by then so there was not much concern that junior had swiped his camera. I kept that camera right through college. For Father's Day this year, Cheri got me a scanner that will scan and process slides into digital images. There is some irony in Kodak announcing the very next…

Woodrow Wilson High School

Photos of a Washington, D.C. area high school by Esther Bubley, taken in 1943. I see that my most of my bw photos are still uploading in sepia. I've decided that Blogger is the Microsoft Word of posting environments - making "helpful" changes you don't really want. Update: I've learned how to cancel out the sepia effect.
