Me and Nick went back to Jersey on Sunday and had a good dinner.
We threw a football and tried to hacky sack in the dark.
Its not easy.
This is the known photo of my Grandma that now hangs in my old room. My dad took it in 1966 and it has always hung in our various houses growing up. I think its great.
It reminded me to scan some chromes and prints I found while rummaging in her house during my last visit to England. I swiped a bunch of dumpster bound photos and scanned 'em today at Printspace. Here's a few of my favorites...
An old Polyfoto my Grandma had made for her passport.
Pretty cool huh? Its sharp too..
I'm guessing she used that passport to go to India where these next couple were taken.
Here's my postwar dad on the left and some little schemers on the right.
My dad as a young teen with his two younger brothers. This print is amazing..its about two inches square but holds so much detail. I could print this scan 16"x16" and it wouldn't lose much.
The back of the above photo
Mysterious grainy snapshot of my Grandma.
My Ma spazzing out.
Another strange moment
I don't know who would've taken this one but its great. My Grandpa and Grandma on some riverbank.
Then I found some of these amazing 2 1/4 Kodachromes. This is my Grandma and Uncle Simon in Switzerland.
A couple of super old crappy scans I found while looking for something else.
The romantic "Valentino Suite" in a downtown LA hotel. I forgot the name of the place cause it was a long time ago. A scene from Seven was filmed in the hallway and they were filming the first Spider Man out in the alley... doing that scene when realizes learns he can climb walls. I remember looking down the air shaft and seeing all the lights and people and being super stoked that there was going to be a Spider Man movie.
and I also found this cool photo of my old roommate Meaghan from about 9 years ago.
