There was a huge gas war many years ago 12 cents a gallon !!!! . I must have been 20. Decided to go for a drive in the old 57 Chevy convertible . Ended up in Mississippi and traveled all the back roads with old slide camera . Took a few photo's I got out and sat on porch of this abandoned house on stilts . I forget there were snakes and spiders and didn't sit there long . Told my Mom I found a new house :-) Was a eye awaking experience as I had never been to that area in south and so much poverty and happy people . Money can't buy that ! PS My wig was to cover a head that had blown in wind for 2 days :- ) I found the old slides and had them developed but quality is not best . Was thinking of pack rat and missing his old photo's of old houses .

    Nice pictures Sis, something you will always remember. Was your mother shocked when you told her you found a new house in Mississippi ?

    Who was your partner in the passenger seat taking the pictures? Did you tell your mother it was the other persons fault for turning your 2 hour trip into 2 days? :-)
  7. Manikin Manikin, 10 months ago
    Yes Bro I blamed him lol we were married though so nothing untoward . She was babysitting our kids and was not happy about that :-)

    The transparency says color so what happened to the color, or in plain english you should be able to understand, the not so wonderful comment that was so stupid " Just curious about the size and format-- Real Photo Postcard/ large silver gelatin print, snapshot...." I thought you might get asked again !!:))

    The color was very dark nearly black and photo's are very dark can barely see them no light on them vaque color on this one with me but rest are so dark I had to lighten them to see Phil . There is a hint of color on this one I added but rest black and dark .
  12. Manikin Manikin, 10 months ago
    Phil I had to lighten most of them to see and did same to this one but it does show color . Good question and valid one :-)
  13. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 10 months ago

    Ever since you posted this I could see in my minds eye you on a whirlwind trip going down the road in your convertible. Then it occurred to me that that you had a post that fit this perfectly;

  16. Manikin Manikin, 10 months ago
    Thanks Phil , That one showed more color than others . We must have had a 10 cent camera :-)
  17. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 10 months ago
    Yes, well I started out with a 110 type camera I bought when I was around 16, was not much better, prob a lot worse !~
  18. Manikin Manikin, 10 months ago
