From the Archives

My last post had a bunch of pictures of Seattle taken in the late 70’s, but there were many other great photos that I found while scavenging through my parent’s old albums. Here are a few of my favorites:


I really like this one because of all the activity in the background and then the stillness in the center. Also, I like how the photographer’s identity is obscured, though if I had to guess, I’d say it’s my dad at a party in NYC.


The caption said this one was taken on the Whidbey Island ferry. That’s all I know about it, but I like how the separation and contrast created by the frames of the windows enhances the colors of the sunset.


My older sister, Rebecca, running through the front yard. Must have been around 1983 or 1984. I like her facial expression in this one.


Caption on the back reads: “Rafe’s Nikes, 1980.” This is now my computer’s desktop wallpaper.


That’s my grandmother (reclining) and my grandfather sitting in a park somewhere in NYC. Don’t know who the lady in the middle is. Part of the fun of looking at old photos is trying to fill in all the missing pieces.


People were such sharp dressers back in the day.


I really like the color of the water in this one. Also, fat rolls.
