Photography was difficult in the days of film. Typically I will take many photographs to get a very few that have decent subject matter and composition. I was never willing to expend a lot of film to accomplish that. My favorite film was Kodachrome, a slide film, which I didn’t use at all for family photos. We have always been picture print and album people, not slide show people. So the use of Kodachrome was less spontaneous and more planned, which led to fewer good pictures that were taken for their own sake. This collection is from that small pile of negatives and slides that I set aside in the “good” pile.
