Shadow Shot Sunday arrives courtesy of Tracy - based normally down under in Brisbane, but currently on holiday on the Great Barrier Reef. Hoping you are enjoying the sun and surf...
This week's submission takes me back to my youth in East Hartford Connecticut. The year is 1968, the day Easter Sunday, in the front yard along Wickham Drive. The yellow easter finery is on sister Michele, the era where a new outfit was often purchased.
The two gentlemen are also named Ralph, Grandpa (L) and my father. Shadows abound, under the three participants.
A shadow falls underneath the new family hauler, a maroon 1968 VW Microbus with a mere 57 horsepower (43 Kw).
All I remember was that this VW was slooooow, molasses flowing faster than this. However, when shadows are available, who cares about speed?
Time and poor storage have not been kind to these prints, full of fade and blemish. I scanned these a few years ago, and I do not have proper photo software to fix, so edits were not made. Yet, the past seems quite alive even if full of scratches. My seventh grade memories are a bit scratchy these days too...See more of the shadowy world at the always fun Hey Harriet!
