Maverick....

OK, in my "Sh-Boom" post, I talked about my friend from high school who had a Ford Maverick. At MikeW's prodding, I dug thourgh the old photo-albums and found the picture. IIRC this was before I had my license, so it's early '76 at the latest. A mere 30 years ago... Ah, but it was a sweet time, though. Meanwhile, GaryW, shown here, was the guy whi got me interested in 35mm, taught me the basics of B&W processing in the school's darkroom. THANKS Gary, wherever you are!

Thanks for the blast from the past. God, were we really ever that young?!? That was a great car, I (vaguely) remember some interesting times in it. I also love the Strohs t-shirt.

I kinda like this picture. The compositiion isn't too bad, especially since I didn't have a CLUE. I'd never even HEARD od rule-of-thirds at that point!
