Hip Circa 1976

If we had a band, we’d make a record, and use this photo for the cover.

Shorty with Friend

The tracks would include music remixed from 1976, the year Cray-1 was developed, Apple was formed, the Ramones release their first album, and Patty Hearst was sentenced to jail.

That’s Shorty and Friend near Lake Dreamland, Jefferson County, KY, by the photographer Robert K. Hower in the Smithsonian American Art Museum Collection. Seen in the Plonsky group on Facebook.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page.
