My favorite elective in high school was photography. In December 1978 we took a field trip to downtown Seattle and wandered around shooting anything we wanted. I feel a bit awkward now doing street photography and taking photographs of strangers - but being a teenager and being on assignment I guess I felt entitled to do so. We shot black-and-white so we could process the film and develop the prints ourselves. I took over sixty photos but most of them I had only seen in contact print size since I only enlarged a handful of them. A few years ago I came across the negatives and took them in to be put on a CD and it was pretty exciting for me to see them big. If these look familiar to some of you I shared them at the time with Vintage Seattle and you may have seen them there.
(Photos removed. I may post them again if I can prevent them from being shared for profit by others.)
