Oh, To Be Young Again (Old Chrome #2)
Lovely Wife and I met in 1981.
Her family pretty much adopted me as one of them soon after. In the summer of 1982 they went on vacation to Panama City Beach, Florida up in the Florida panhandle, and they invited me to go along. (We weren't even engaged yet when this was taken.)
From the perspective of Louisiana, where we all lived at the time, it was "down" to Florida.
I had started shooting slide film almost exclusively in early 1982 and this is one of my all-time favorite shots of Lovely Wife from this trip, taken on Kodachrome 64.
A plain old "normal" lens is hard to beat.
I love Kodachrome enough that I have come up with a process that allows me to approximate it's "thicker", contrasty look with digital photos. It works great with some photos, but not all.
We had our 23rd wedding anniversary this past August.
