In the Beginning…

January 25, 2010

No, I’m not going all Genesis on you.  In digging through my archives, I came across some of the very first railroad pictures I took and I thought it would be fun to post them from time to time.

It was late 1971. I was a fearless 11-year-old with a 10 speed bike, a bus pass, and my Dad’s Kodak Instamatic.  Taking pictures was so easy with that camera. You didn’t even have to focus!

I have scanned the original prints as my scanner can’t handle 126 negatives. The horrid textured paper used by Fox Photo is apparent in the scans, for which I apologize in advance. I have “improved” the scans by cropping, color correcting and anything else that could make the images viewable.

I’ll update this post, providing photo particulars, unless someone in comments beats me to it…

    Ha! the textured paper. I remember taking film to be processed and they asked if you wanted glossy or textured. Some people actually chose textured.
