    Probably. Same goes for Ed's "black" jacket. I didn't have IR filters for that trip.

    I wasn't being serious, I thought it was actually that colour, as I think I have seen him in the sweater in other shots

    The thing is, it might actually be that color! I haven't seen it since 2007!

    Great thread!

    Here's a few more of me from last week. It might as well be...I can't remember any of the 60's and 70's.

    Not a frame from The Last Samurai, but a photo from My First (and Only) Wedding. That would have been 19 years ago come December 19th. Just 29 years old.

    I wish my wife (of 18 years) would have let us do a shot like that (except that she is slightly taller than me).

    You needed to be married at a Shinto shrine in Japan. That is what we were wearing for our marriage ceremony. While what I was wearing looks cool, it also prevents you from breathing or consuming food and drink, which can be a problem as in the ceremony you need to drink several cups of sake.

    At the risk of scaring everyone away, here's my contribution:

    On my cross-country trip this past September:


    iPhone selfie; at a concert at Deer Valley:


    Proof that I'm "bi-costal": with my mother at "our family beach", Natasket, circa 1953. And with my granddaughter, Huntington Beach this October:




    Government issue: circa 1970:


    With my brother, his wife (far right), their kids, my wife (in blue), and a friend, in front of the house we built in Mexico last December:


    Me on the left, my mother and sister at my grandfather's farm, west of Boston, MA, circa 1954:

    Wonderful...

    When I was young, we barely had food to eat; let alone cameras.
    So no pics of me are there from those times.

    Thanks for sharing guys.

    I shot that not with the M8, but with my old D-Lux 3!

    So, yep, the sweater is exactly that color!

    As someone too young to know, when you got drafted, did you get to pick which branch of the service and, if so, why cargo, um, I mean, Marines?

    I "volunteered" for the Marines. It went something like, "we need five volunteers to go into the Marine Corps... you, you and you three over there are the volunteers." Truth is, I was glad... eventually.

    Thank you Edward. My Dad rarely took pictures, but he had a great eye.

    Thanks for sharing guys.
    Wish we had some of you from "back in the day" Rayyan. I'll bet you were a handsome lil' devil.

    A quick story about our family camera. My father served in Europe in WWII, and then went back for about 2 years in the "Occupation Force" after the war. In 1946, the base exchange were he was located got in one Leica IIIc, and all those interested in buying the camera put their names in a hat. My father was lucky enough to draw out, and even though it was expensive... several month's wages... he bought the camera and a 5cm f1.5 Summitar. It is the only camera, and only lens, he owned until he and my mother bought a cheap Nikon digicam a few years back. Every photo of me or my siblings as children was taken with that same camera and lens. There are gaps in the family story when their were issues with the camera. The shutter broke at one point, so there are no pictures at all for a 2+ year gap. Dad gave me the camera a few years ago... a treasure I will never sell.

    Jeepers! That's one hell of a way to get drafted. But it sounds like the military!

    Marvelous story, Lloyd!

    I wish there were something similar to offer from my own family history. Unfortunately, my father's Leica IIIf had a bit of father-son spite war associated with it so it never resonated with me ... I traded it for more modern equipment shortly after I inherited it and enjoyed my own Leica cameras, those i bought for myself, much more.

    My uncle gifted me with his prized Polaroid SX-70 last March, and there's a lovely memory in that—which is, I imagine, part of why I enjoy using it so much.

    Lloyd, no need for thanks - you should give eternal thanks to the person who shot that wonderful family portrait. I think we'd all love to have something like that as our legacy. Simply wonderful.

    Btw, it's an inspiration to me to revisit my father's film & cine archive that he left me. It's sitting in my sister's loft awaiting revival before its too late.
