Your Ancient History

Challenge #5 in the Eye of the Beholder series. Hosted by wrosenthal.
Challenge has finished
Recently I submitted photos to several challenges that I took decades ago as a teenager. They did not do too badly, and one was actually in the top ten. Now it is your turn. Show an early photo, perhaps the first photo that you took that you believe was worth showing to others but that you never submitted to a contest or challenge. For some of you that will be a piece of ancient history. For others, it will be more recent history. You must indicate in the notes your age now and the age that you were when you took the photo. The ‘honor system’ prevails. Please read all of the rules below before participating. Let’s have some fun with this one.

This was taken in 1981 (when I was 22). I was working on a kibbutz in northern Israel where there were a number of young people preparing to enter the army. This girl was one of them. A year later, war broke out in Lebanon. Nikon SLR (can't remember which) and 50mm lens. No exposure details recorded.
