45 years ago to-day, Jim's Mom drove us up the California Coast from Los Angeles to be in this Las
I'd never seen the California Coastline before but, I've photographed it several times since. I don't recall ever seeing San Francisco before but, that was the week to "be there" and I'd love to know who the girl was that caught me staring at her as she paused atop the last step at Ghiradelli Square as I shot a picture of a couple who handed me their camera and asked me to get them and the Golden Gate Bridge in the picture. No one had ever asked me to take a picture or compose it getting all the landmark sights they wanted in the same shot. The rest is 45 years of photo composition history. Yeah, 45 years ago to-day the whole world went somewhere intentional to gather around a television, to be with those they wanted to remember the moment with. A feel for those that weren't born or old enough to remember doing that.
