A Visit to the Past

I have always loved this photograph.  I ran across it in an old portfolio the other day. I took it in college (in the 1980’s) with a 35mm Minolta film camera and developed and printed it in the college darkroom.  Oh, the good old days when I could spend an entire day printing B/W photographs in the darkroom to my heart’s content! 🙂  And the smell of developer and stop bath. Hmm…I think I just got a whif of them in my memory. LOL BWDogandShedW

The dog belonged to the farm and just happened to trot right out in front of me for a second while I was shooting the picture.  Then he happily took off down the road, back to the barn.

It is overcast and raining today, a perfect day for reminiscing…

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell

  1. Brought tears to my eyes…loved those days, also. Every time Dad sees an old house or barn, he says, “Nellie would love this one”!!!


  2. I wish I still had the negs and prints that I did in college. sigh… I lost everything including a full professional camera rigging in a house fire. Never have been able to recover from that loss.


  3. I am so sorry to hear about your fire. It must have been devastating to lose everything. We live near a fire area here in Altadena, fortunately we are low enough from the mountains that our house hasn’t been at risk. The first thing we did when we bought our older home was re-wire the entire house. I had a friend who lost everything to a fire due to old wiring, so I learned from her experience. I lost my 35mm camera’s I had in college when our apartment was broken into a few years later, but fortunately they only took my equipment, not my pics and negatives. After that I moved to medium format. Thanks for your comment and I wish you the best!
