photography is [my first roll of film]

Yep, I just came across the contact sheet of my first roll of film shot back in 1984 (I know for sure because this was the year I broke my ankle in gymnastics) when I was in high school. I had a Canon AL1 (which I still have sitting on my shelf in my office) and hand processed and printed this in the darkroom.

I am not sure what I was thinking with the first frame. My first frame ever (besides 126 film cameras I used) was a Cindy Sherman type self portrait down the side of my house? Wild. These images are purely me. Not for anyone but me. But, I do get a sense that I was trying to do product advertising work right off the bat. Gotta love the fork in the cake!?

I do love the blurred images of my little sis with the long hair and on the swing. Love them. Might even put them in my current portfolio. How nostalgic can you get?
