Pictured to the right is a baby picture of me -- about two months old just before Christmas of 1963.
I do not remember this picture being taken.
It is part of a large project that I started a couple of years ago for the celebration of my parent's 50th wedding anniversary.
My Dad was kind of a photo nut growing up. When I was a kid we had our own darkroom and I can admit to spending many, many happy hours in my teens there in the dark developing my own pictures, slides and enlargements as a photo hobbyist in the late 70s and early 80s.
My Dad understood then that one of the secrets to good photography is to shoot a lot of pictures.
Unfortunately, time and technology changes and the process of archiving all these fading images takes some learning. But I've been doing it for two years straight now and I have years and years of photo finishing industry experience...
