Some years ago—I don’t remember how many—I had the idea that, if I saved up all my raw photographic exposures, I might someday find the opportunity to go back through them, to find and refine selected images, as if seeing anew. Sure enough, I was right.

Now with age piling up and slowing me down [I've made it to 74]—but still holding hopes of adventures to come—I am having good fun in rummaging through the past.

2013 was when my body began to deteriorate in earnest. But I was right about the past.

On the month of your birthday. Ikea offers you a free meatball entrée and a slice of cake (and coffee, of course). I very rarely turn down a free meal, especially one with meat and potatoes. Okay, the coffee was weak, and the meatballs very lightly flavored (and I passed on the steamed-to-soggy vegetables) but the price was right.

I was "mustered out" of the Army in May, 1968. 


Since my knee replacement surgeries, I have been remembering this picture, taken shortly after I came home (note the Army fatigue shirt) and I finally came across it. That flexibility is all in my past now.
[And no, I am not picking my nose while taking a picture—I do have some standards.]

Việt Nam 1965-1968

Are these Vietnamese paparazzi waiting outside a closed stamp collectors' store, or perhaps the bar next door? I don't remember ever encountering them anywhere in my time there, yet here they are—a fragment in a street scene I photographed back then. 

[The word 'paparazzi' only entered the English language with Fellini's 1960 film La Dolce Vita, according to Wikipedia.]

Firenze, 2011

I spent forty years as a conventional, analog, chemical-based photographer, and the last twenty years as a computer-based, digital photographer/image-maker. By choice, little remains from those earlier times and everything now is on two terabytes of hard disk space—immediately accessible for review (on big, calibrated computer screens) and modification.

What a wonderful time in which to have lived…so far.
