Way back in January of 1972 when I was a physics student I visited my friend Glen, a chemist at the University of Calgary, who is a very fine photographer. After drinking some of his fruit brandy we took a few snaps (interesting recipe - get a gallon of pure alcohol from the university chemistry stores and put some fruit of the season into it. After a year passes, filter the brew and mix it with equal parts of distilled water. Let it sit for another year. Then, if you dare, consume it in copious quantities. He typically had 5 or 6 of these brews made every year)
The gun is a WWII German officer's Mauser. The holster for this gun was made out of wood and could be attached to the gun to make it into a rifle with shoulder stock.
All in all, an interesting evening - he even gave my wife a lovely silver dinner ring with amber hearts that he made for her - of course, the silver came from the university chem store He set up two flood lamps and took this portrait of the "real me" - I really LOVE the 1970's-- hide signature --
great story! And a portrait which indicates minds ...
I had already said, I was born in 1973 ... And I really love the 70s (the outfits, music and mentality) ...
Your friend has passed a very strong portrait of you! And it's really great to highlight today ... Share it with us! Thank you Tony.
