"Get your motor runnin'...head out on the highway...lookin' for adventure...and whatever comes our way".....Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf
...looking back in my archive to the first roll of black and white film that I developed myself 40 years ago in 1970 when I was an amateur. Shot with my first 35mm camera, a Mamiya-Sekor 500DTL. I was taking pics in Lincoln Park, San Francisco when a black limousine pulled up and out jumped an entourage of hippies and a couple of photographers. They started shooting photos so I began shooting photos of them shooting photos. Turned out the band of hippies was the rock band Steppenwolf doing a publicity photo shoot. We had an exchange where I convinced John Kay that I was an amateur and was not going to sell the photos. With a title and sepia tone courtesy of Photoshop my 40 year old amateur snapshot becomes a bit of rock history.
