Flashback Friday

1983: a snowy evening at Peddie, my high school alma mater. It was the evening break after study hall, and I needed to get a picture for Photography 1 class. My first roll of film hadn't worked out so well. I forgot to dilute the developer and didn't take the temperature of the solution, so my film ended up very contrasty and reticulated. During the break between study hall and dormitory check-in, I found a friend, set up a tripod and grabbed this photo. I did much better in Photography class after that.


  1. Oh the days in the dark room..... they were fun and for the most part unhurried. Life is different now. Your mention of high school had me looking up my high school and one of the options from Google was the tuition... If I was headed to high school now it would NOT be to that school..... tradition or not... but the memories are priceless.

  2. This has such amazing atmosphere; you really caught a mood, from the magnificent tree to your friend's pose in the snow and the hazy glow in the streetlight.
