My best guess is that this image of best friends Bruce Hagen, Jim Davidson and Scott Wolbers was made in 1971 or 1972, when I would have been 15 or 16 years old. I borrowed a Yashica 124 twin-lens-reflex from my high school photography club, and shot this image at the top of the hill near Church Street in Burlington. (Looks like I made a perfect exposure despite the camera’s lack of a lightmeter. 🙂 I probably developed the film in the darkroom at my high school, but I do not remember ever printing this wonderful shot.
I’m positively thrilled to find these old negatives in such good shape. You can imagine that to me, a shot like this is absolutely priceless.
