Last night I was in the darkroom, and came across this neg whilst looking for something else. I remember it well and can't believe it has been 15 years since I took this photo. Suburban Newcastle, backyard party, at 16 years old. We were just kids, yet we thought we were so cool! Oh dear.

I would like to get around to printing more photos I took as a teenager, however most of them are of people skateboarding - an obsession of mine back then it seems


  1. ha! this is so great! and just a couple weeks ago i came across an article or piece from BBC- a stock of "vintage" 80s photos. I AM NOT VINTAGE i wanted to scream. but then i thought- eh- nothing wrong with vintage, yes? but damn, my era has gone VINTAGE? the photos were crazy funny.

  2. Ha, it is a worry isn't it. I work at a high school, and one day I overheard a student saying 'I wish I was alive in the 80's, cause I LOVE the 80's!'. I must mention she was dressed very 'material girl era' Madonna at the time...
