Self Portrait [1985]

Portrait on The Floating Bridge - 1985

I love before & after shots.

There’s something inherently cool about being able to duplicate a photograph from the past, to see what the differences are between the old and the new.  I did exactly that a couple of years ago, when I came across a 1985 photo I took of myself on the Lacy V. Murrow Bridge across Lake Washington (aka “The Floating Bridge”).  The shot I took back in the day couldn’t be redone, because there is no longer a sidewalk along the south side of the span.  But still, it was fun to see how much things have changed.

And even since the stunning Mrs. BelRedRoad took the 2010 photo, I’ve lost 50 pounds, so change keeps coming.

A Girl and Her Trike – 1967

Little Red Trike in Kodachrome [1967]

The stunning Mrs. BelRedRoad is seen here in the backyard of her Aunt and Uncle’s home in Edmonds WA, with Granddad firing up the grill for some meat.  Looking closely at this Kodachrome slide, probably taken by her Grandmother, one notices the trike isn’t just red. It’s Metallic Dark Red with a good amount of Sixties metalflake in the paint.

Pretty righteous!

Mrs. BelRedRoad can also be seen in the following:

Me and older sister standing in front of the tree.  Love the yellow shawl and shiny suit jacket.  I shared my memories of this moment and the year surrounding it on Intersect.
