Friday Hunt, 2016.2.7

It is Friday and it is again time for Teresa's always fun Friday Hunt  The clues are below, and the first clue goes back in time 40 years - but his the theme quite well...

Starts With 'G'. I thought that a look at my Grandmother (Agnes) and Grandfather (Ralph) on their Golden Anniversary including 12 Grandkids. Plenty of the letter today! The event was held 40 years ago (gasp!) on August 21, 1976...

Golden Anniversary, 1976
Grandpa Ralph, Grandma Agnes, 21 Aug. 1976, Steubenville, OH
Did I mention Grandkids? By the pool, Holiday Inn, Steubenville, OH, Aug. 1976

Wheels. I found a wheel pic taken from wheelchair height, where I captured myself in the hubcap of a restored 1936 Dodge. I notice items closer to the asphalt compared to other people - an interesting perspective. The shadowy and clandestine photographer (guess who?) may be spotted too...great choice this week Teresa!

Black/white edit - very Film Noir
Sepia edit, more like an old print


  1. "GEE" Ralph that's a nice stroll down memory lane. That's '36 Dodge pickup I assume. Nice edits, but I like the red wheel with the wide whitewalls the best. Take care and I'll be back again next Friday.

  2. I like the restored Dodge, please post the rest of the truck. Will we have to wait for the P's and see Pickup? Or have I seen it before? May have.
    The anniversary celebration was at a nice place. I remember my grandparents having one also. It was a fun time for us kids. I have no idea which person was you in the picture? Are you telling?

  3. Loved the photographs of your family in the seventies and that reflection shot in the wheel is class. Have a wonderful week ahead.

  4. Hi,
    Great shots. Love the old Dodge, beautiful.
    Have a great day!

  5. Doesn't time the old pics...and the clothing from that era...and I bet you are the cutie in the front row with the blue swimsuit wheels...awful shiny though...the car must not drive a lot...Thanks for the post. Have a great weekend.

  6. How wonderful that everybody appears to be smiling in that family photo. Great shot! I love the variations on the wheel.

  7. Love the wheel! It worked perfectly for a selfie. I always enjoy when you share the old family pictures. Really like the fashions of the seventies (okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration). LOL Thank you so much for joining in Friday's Hunt. Have a great week!
