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.

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

It was the 80’s. Life was Good. (#3)

I hope when you are my age, you’ll be able to say – as I have been able to say:
We lived in freedom. Our lives were a statement, not an apology.

– [I can’t believe I’m voluntarily quoting] Ronald Reagan

“Old Daytona Beach” had so much more charm than today’s version. One could say the same about the subject of today’s photo, my lifelong friend, John.

“John” Ilford film & chemistry; Nikon Photomic FTN SLR; lots of cassette-taped music; Daytona Beach boardwalk (near the old clock tower); circa 1980.
