Stumbled across some really old pictures.

This one is from November 1976 at Skewen Rugby Club where we played a combination of Welsh Rock music and covers from the charts. I set up my 35mm Voigtlander on tripod and had a friend to hit the shutter release every now and then - I couldn't be in two places at once and it was way before infrared romte release - I'm playing the guitar on the left.
Memories of really good fun times and some really great characters now long gone.

Ok from memory, the image was taken on Ilford HP4 B&W film and printed on a hard grade of Ilford paper using my dusty (yes those are real dust marks and I can remember the film and paper because that's all I used to use..!) old Gnome enlarger - cheep as chips..!

The print was scanned a few years ago and the digital version has lived on the hard drive since.

In CS3, I've cleaned up some of the really bad dust spots, increased contrast slightly (didn't need much) and then added the border and text.

Whoa - Dai you were like a... a... hippie! Well, almost.

Great vintage shot, I know it gives you some fantastic memories, too.

Have a great Tuesday!
