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.

  1. stumbled across this. We moved in at 126 in 1972 or 1973. You were a bit older, but we may share some memories. Curious about your description ‘strange, sad, beautiful’.
