THROWBACK THURSDAY


The early 1960's.  Pressed into action on a day off to shoot film of a building fire.

(Yes, it was "film" in those days and it had to be processed before we could see what we had.  And, yes, I really was that slim once upon a time.)

Looks like a top of the line 16 mm though.

Bell & Howell, I believe.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Or a Bolex, maybe. We had both and I can't remember which was which.

Lean, eager and close to the action! Great shot. If I were a promo person at your station I would have played that up!

Ah to be young and slender again. Halcyon days, eh?

Stephen Hayes said...

I was that slender once, for about two weeks.

I don't think he, or she, ever saw the picture.

I lasted longer than that but it was a long time ago, now.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Oh, yeah.

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Gee, I thought I was better looking than that! ;^/
