It was the 80’s. Life was Good. (#4)

A man who is “of sound mind” is one who keeps the inner madman under lock and key.
– Paul Valéry

This is the last of my four-part series looking back at some of the quirkiness that was the 1980’s. I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos I’ve dug up and shared from my youth. It seems like only yesterday.

“Danny”, Nikon Photomic FTN, Ilford film & chemistry, circa 1980

  1. I have enjoyed the images and the quotes as well. The “inner madman”, indeed! I didn’t take this series seriously when you started it, but serendipitously Facebook friends and even family are sending me images from the past I’d forgotten and thought I’d never see again. You not only take photographs, you perform therapy and work magic. That’s a lot of power.
