Vintage photos of:
1955. My brother had just gotten his 35mm Lordox and was experimenting. Always ready to be the center of attention, I was glad to supply the subject matter. Another cool shirt. The TV is showing what most people would think is a Cadillac emblem, but I think it's Nash. View full size.
September 1940. St. Mary's County, Maryland. "John and Louise Dyson, aged Farm Security Administration borrowers. Mr. Dyson was born into slavery over eighty years ago. Mrs. Dyson is the mother of fifteen children." Medium format negative by John Vachon for the Farm Security Administration. View full size.
1955. A rainbow over the campus of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, seems to end on a row of classic 50s cars. The two-tone '53 Olds is nice, but I wish it wasn't obscuring the red-roofed Merc behind it. Shot by my brother, then a freshman there, on 35mm Kodachrome. View full size.
