We didn't travel much growing up but here's one of me from PA about 1963 or 1964. Dad shot 8mm movies but not very many stills.

Ronstar, That is a great shot of your grandfather.

Yes it is, made of cast concrete if I remember right.

Here's another one at the same gas station and the other one with some color correction and brightened shadows.

Sinclair at the time had an advertising campaign with a tie to dinosaurs and I guess this station owner wanted to take it a step further. A neat bit of roadside Americana.

This was taken in about 1982 when we were stationed in Europe. It was taken at the Roman Coliseum. The second on a camping trip in Idaho, circa 1976.

I traveled almost constantly during most of my childhood. I have almost no photos of travel that include me, though, because I don't have any photos taken by other family members. I attached

(1) 1954: a photo taken of my family in Egypt, with me sitting on my mother's lap on a camel at age 6. Notice the grimace on my face. As you can see, my dislike of travel surfaced young! .

(2) 1958: a typical photo of the scads that I took with my Brownie camera, and still have. This one was pulling up to the dock in Moorea (I took the photo and so I am not in it).

(3) 1959: a photo of me at age 11, at a Japanese friend's house in Tokyo where her Mom insisted that I should borrow and wear a very fancy kimono.

Hey, he was pretty cool! As I was getting off the camel that day, the camel suddenly stood up and I found myself falling an awfully long way towards the ground (those camels were tall!). The camel driver caught me and although scared I wasn't hurt at all. The camel was all spitting and being mean and he dealt with that at the same time. I thought he was the most wonderful camel driver who ever lived.
