My composition of the negatives was poor, no sense of depth of field and the weeds in the foreground were blurry. I got a D+ for the assignment. Yet this would set the stage for my later becoming a photojournalist and having my work published. I would also meet and work with well known photographers over the years who would greatly influence my work.
My model for this particular shoot was Jackie Cox, my girl friend from Littleton, Colorado. We were attending Colorado State University.

Found: three 2 1/2" x 2 1/2 negatives
taken between 1966-1967
City Park, Ft. Collins, Colorado
I found these negatives in a box sitting squashed underneath several pounds of paper layered with dust. I nearly tossed them into the trash, but then decided to get the negatives developed. I am so glad, because the result was a lasting and wonderful memory.
