Earliest Photos

May 26th, 2009 by Editor B

I think these are the earliest photos I ever took. They’re stamped “May 1975″ but I think some were taken around Xmas 1974. They appear to have been taken with some sort of pinhole camera. My memories from that time are rather fuzzy — kind of like these pix.

    I’m speechless, not to mention amazed! There’s just something about the power of the graven image. With the clarity of digital cameras — and the worship thereof — the beauty of the dancing photons is all but lost. I, obviously, worship old stuff.

    Ian Cognito of Zamboni Soundtracks is living in Bloomington?

    Do you know how blown my mind is right now?

    Oh jeepers, I thought that was implicitly understood for some reason.

    Yeah, my name is Ian and I was more or less a Rhino’s rat in the mid-90s and went to South High School and IU, which I guess makes me a suptertownie.

    I was more or less completely obsessed with ROX back then (in a non-creepy way) and am similarly obsessed with 80s/early 90s Bton punk culture now.

    Now it dawns on me how I first connected to Zamboni. ‘Twas through last.fm cuz I saw you left a comment on the Plastic Cheeses page. Never made the link though. So really it’s not so weird after all — but it sure seemed that way.

    How would one go about contacting you privately? If you put your e-mail address in the appropriate comment form field I’ll see it but no one else will. I’ve got some stuff you may be interested in.
