Slides from The Isle 1974, Ambience

Filed under: photos — John @ 5:54 pm

The Isle was a spot, actually an island for a season or two, on/in Shellpot Creek in Brandywine Hundred where some teenage folks and friends from Windsor Hills would go to hang out and get beyond the eyes of parental authority. Here are some pictures of the (Phace) place circa May 1974.

Slides from the Hills, 1974

Filed under: photos — John @ 6:07 pm

I took a photography course the last half of my senior year at Brandywine High School. One of the things we had to do was take and develop a roll of 35mm slide film. I’ve had these slides for 34 years and I never really saw them until I bought my new scanner (which can scan slides and 35mm negatives as well as photographic prints). This post and two more posts in the following days will be based on the 14 slides that I found and scanned.

The initial four slides were taken in the immediate vicinity of the house my family moved into in the summer of 1972, and which house my parents are in the process of moving out of this very month… Windsor Hills was/is a strange, sad and beautiful place to live.
