FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

1978


Doesn't this have the 70's written all over it? From my mom's huge glasses, my dad's shirt, and to the sales guy's ensemble? So retro!

Can you believe I am the one who took this picture? I was probably around 9 years old at the time, and my parents were shopping for a Kodak Polaroid camera. I'm assuming the sales guy wanted to show how easy it was to use by letting me take the picture.

My dad was always into the newest gadgets, so having this picture does not surprise me at all!

LOL ... wouldn't it be so neat if you could get that picture to the salesman? I doubt even he has a picture of himself in that suit.

This is great.

Amanda said...

That is such a neat picture... I love that you were all out shopping together... I dont really remember doing that as a kid! (maybe it was cause I was a holy terror when in public? Just sayin)

Thanks for the flashback!

Janice said...

Oh dear, I think I must be nearly old enough to be your Mom! She looks great in those sunglasses or is that just my 70's psychodelic mind? Thanks for your comment on my blog, I do so enjoy FPF.
