About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

The Hair Brothers at Crater Lake: 1975

The Hair Brothers at Crater Lake: 1975

1975, Crater Lake, Oregon. A friend, my brother and me, captured during the golden hour. I shot this on 35mm Kodak Vericolor via self-timer. Lighting is everything, isn't it? View full size.

Moment In Time

This picture is great.
Speaks for itself.

Gordon Lightfoot

The Lightfoot force is strong in these Jedi. Good stuff.

Waffle Stompers

Check out the shoes! I remember those suede shoes with Vibram soles. They were great because they lasted a long time. Lot longer then tennis shoes.

Bandwagon

Seems to me like these shots tterrace posts of himself have started a gathering of gawkers... and I may join in! Quite the looker, I say!!! And photographer to boot!

All hail the hair!

I Was There

a few months before this picture was taken. IIRC, it was early May and the lake road had just been reopened after the winter season. I had to climb up on a snowbank to take a picture of the lake. I was 19 then. Beautiful pic here with the golden light, keep 'em coming!

The photo might be over 30 years old but...

I think the look of the fellow on the right is completely contemporary.

Golden Boy

Somehow ttrerrace has effected that rare transformation from nerdy-geeky to total hottie. (And in the fashion minefield that was the 1970s, no less! The others look like they stepped on an M80.) What was your secret??

Oh wow

That is a beautiful landscape! It is only accentuated by those two dashing men on the right.
