CROSSED OUT


Photographer: PAH.  Image from a contact sheet.  1967.

           
I’m inching my way though this shot taking out the big black X.  Probably no work on it today as I just deleted a batch of photos from my Imgur account by accident.    But it’s coming along. 
Left to Right: Bobbie, Margot with the curls, Fred...a sailor Bobbie brought home, Milaka, me, and Uncle Wonder Ray.

There’s been quite a discussion on this shot in Facebook.  I asked everyone what year it was.  I even got a phone call from Bobbie.  “That’s not me,” she told me.  I laughed at her.  “I remember the dress,” I said.  It was pink and orange.

·        Milaka  Oh Bobbie!
·       
Milaka  Where did you find this one?

o      Katy  I brought it down to San Diego with me...on a contact sheet of photos PAH did of me in 1967 I believe.....
o  
Milaka  I am loving all these. I remember him I'm the dark room
These are awesome photos from the past. Thank you for sharing!
·         
·        Eileen  Clearly there was a professional in the family to mark up rejects.
o   
Maggie  Yes, he was a professional photographer.
·        
Milaka  Maybe east lane house? Just guessing.
o   
Katy  no...Louden Lane
·        
Pam  1960
o   
Milaka  Can’t be. I was born in 64.
o   
Maggie   I didn't meet Bobbie till 66
·   
Margaret  That is the same chair that you were sitting in for that picture that you did a self portrait out of
o   
Milaka  I remember the chair.

Margaret  Milaka Hawkins you have not called me 
·        
Maggie  Yes,
·        
Milaka  You were obviously picking something out of my foot. Must have epic photos as every one interested. Well except Bobbie she looks hot.
·        
Maggie Bailey Look, they are being a band.....1967 1968?
·        
Katy  my guess is 1967...based on when I met you all at Southwestern JC...

...and 1967 it was.

  1. "Faded hotographs..." That magic of capturing a moment in time. The Heraclitus river. Love that stuff.

  2. Amazing how people in the same family remember an event differently if at all.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
