The 80’s

Roller Derby

“This is peak 1980s, family portraiture, on skates. I’m the one providing the flourish, as the caboose on the end.”

Rear Window Regret

“I’m loving this photo I came across. It’s our wedding day and the ‘rear car window show’ shot was a popular pose back in the late 80’s. Judging by my expression either my new hubby farted or I’ve just realized what I’ve done.”

The Hungover Photographer

“Found this Olan Mills beauty from 1983. My dad claims he remembered the photographer to be pretty hungover. You think?”

Last Action Heroes

“I’m on the right my brother is on the left. It was the middle 80s. All I can say is I fully hold Stallone and Van Damme responsible for this. We tried. We failed. Miserably.”

Pump Up The Volume

“This is my 2 sisters and me in a portrait that was an anniversary gift for our parents. Our sister Michelle, in red with a hybrid ‘Farrah Fawcett /Pittsburgh big hairdo, was the one who thought this would be the perfect gift (she footed the bill).”

The Triangle

“My mother got her hairdresser diploma in 1987. I was a poor innocent victim of her experiments. I guess she put a billiard triangle around my head and put in some hairspray.”

Hair Club

“This family photo was taken at Sears in 1987 as present to our mom. I guess you can tell we all loved heavy metal music. The guy on the back right is the oldest of the four brothers and yes that’s his real hair. The one in the front left is me, the youngest of the four, and I was pissed that I had to take this picture.  We asked if they had an alley way for the back drop, but had to settle for a plain one.”

“Me as a baby around 1989. Don’t worry, I’m not really drunk, but I sure look a lot like I am.”
