Hi Carol!
         
Well, the general responses to my images at the Reunion have inspired me to go back through my image files
and see what else I can find.
          
I got my first 35mm camera midway through my senior year.  The color prints and black and white negatives
have not survived, but the color slides I shot became the nucleus for my image archives today.   It took me
a while to get the concept of correct exposure figured out, and (for whatever reason) I saved many slides
that were badly over and under exposed.  What few images I've shared so far were the few that were
the best exposures.   
          
Thanks to the magic of PhotoShop.. and about 5 years of being scrunched under the learning curve....  
I can fix a lot of these badly exposed shots.. It's relatively easy to lighten up a dark slide.. but until two
nights ago I couldn't save an overexposed shot.

After the Reunion, I took another PhotoShop seminar, and I learned some very useful tricks... so now I've
corrected some earlier 40 year old exposure errors and I'm willing to share the results.
              
I've got some shots of our actual graduation, the senior class play, and some classroom shots on the day
after graduation... (we did have to come back as I recall...)  There was a senior lunch, and some kind
of dance that wasn't the Prom...    
          
I've got a picture of the front of the school, taken from the external fire escape of some building
across the street.. Hey, photographers have got to do the best they can with what they can find....     
What's really remarkable about the image, other than settling a lot of questions about the General Auto
Sales lot across the street... is the parking lot!   Look at the pattern of oil stains in every single empty
parking place!  .. one stain under the crankcase, one under the rear axel! ... in every single space!
   .... and somebody driving a 1950-something black car turning onto Huntington.........
 
              From the Dungeon...
                    Chip

Those Were the Days

 
Eastern European folk music; lyrics by Gene Raskin
 
Once upon a time, there was a tavern,
Where we used to raise a glass or two.
Remember how we laughed away the hours,
Think of all the great things we would do.
 
Those were the days, my friend,
We thought they'd never end.
We'd sing and dance,
Forever and a day.
We'd live the life we choose,
We'd fight and never loose,
For we were young,
And sure to have our way
La la la ...
 
Then the busy years went rushing by us.
We lost our starry notions on the way.
If by chance, I'd see you in the tavern,
We'd smile at one another,
And we'd say,
 
Those were the days, my friend,
We thought they'd never end.
We'd sing and dance,
Forever and a day.
We'd live the life we choose,
We'd fight and never lose.
Those were the days,
Oh, yes, those were the days.
La la la ...
 
Just the other night I stood before the tavern.
Nothing seemed the way it used to be.
In the glass I saw strange reflections.
Was that lonely woman really me?
 
Through the door there came familiar laughter.
I saw your face, and heard you call my name.
Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts, the dreams are still the same.

Thanks so very much, Chip!)
