Happy Birthday Dan.
These images would be from the summer of 1979 I believe. These scans of prints that I made that summer, in the basement of my parents home, and may be all I have left from my “first roll ever“. No idea what the film was but the camera was a Ricoh KR-5 my dad had bought for me while in Florida. Upper image is me and my best friend Dan, hanging out on the front steps of my elementary school in Sault Ste Marie, Cody School. The bottom pic is Dan and Ennio and I (we hung out all the time), and a guy we occasionally hung out with, Peter. Ahhhh, memories. Hard to believe this was almost 35 years ago.
I grew up believing God keeps his eye on us all. And He used to lean upon me As I pledged allegiance to the wall. Lord, I recall my little town.
Coming home after school, flying my bike past the gates of the factories. My mom doing the laundry, hanging our shirts in the dirty breeze.
