FRAMES: A few scenes from a 1975 box of negatives

I’ve started scanning a new box of negatives from 1975 so here is the first batch of scans.

Remember, the only info I have on these frames is what is written on the negative sleeve, the date and sometimes the photographer.

A few random thoughts/items of note:

1) I have no idea why in the frame labeled “Male Tops” why the fashion shot is of a fella getting weighed on a scale while wearing such a nice shirt…not that I am questioning the photographer’s portrait/illustration skills…I’m just curious why that prop was chosen.

2) I love getting a glimpse inside PSNS since I have never been allowed in the buildings with my pesky camera in hand.

3)I never knew roadmap dispensers were a thing but I’m guessing it was a handy little machine to have in gas stations etc.

***For a recap of this negative scanning project of mine, that I am afraid will take many many years to finish, you can click here.

***Also, if you have missed a few of the earlier From The Archive Posts ( I think there are like 30+ of them) you can find them HERE.

FRAMES: From the Archives: 1973: Friday the 13th., giant tube on car, people who work at night and more.

The last few frames from one of the 1973 boxes of negatives.

Sometimes the title of the negative sleeve doesn’t seem to match the photos that are included within. That was not the case with the “Large Tube On Car” label, since it was indeed just a bunch of frames of 4 fellas with a large tube on their car.

As for the negatives labeled “Friday The 13th.”… well I had no idea what I was going to find within that one and I admit I groaned when is saw the many frames of people walking down the sidewalk under (and sometimes around) a ladder.

FRAMES: From The Archives -1973: an impressive cardboard fort, a giant meteorite, the Pepsi plant and more.

More frames from the 1973 box of negatives showcasing a little bit of everything.

The cardboard fort documented below is indeed impressive! I feel like my cardboard forts as a kid did not even come close to the grand scale of this MANSION that the kids below built. They even have art on the walls!

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #89: Festival Fun

Okay so I post this challenge theme every year at this time, and every year it fails (fails as in I don’t get enough entries for publication).

And gosh darn it I don’t understand why because I see plenty of people out there at these festivals snapping away with their cameras and iphones and filling the KitsapSun instagram feed with #kitsapfestivals.

I have faith that this year is the year that the Festival Fun challenge really happens!!!

So, since the month of May kick starts the summer of festivals,  your challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, is to show me your best photo taken from any of the festivals, events etc. happening in the next 5 weeks. Your photo MUST be taken at an upcoming “festival” OR one that just happened earlier this month. Don’t show me a blurry photo of a viking from last year (well for that matter don’t show me a blurry photo of anything…ever) I want current photos from THIS YEAR.

There are plenty of things going on in our area and heck you don’t even have to attend any of these listed below  because I am sure there is multitude of other events going on across the water in the big city as well:

May 9th.  Gig Harbor Beer Festival

May 12th-17th. Port Townsend Rhododendron Festival

May 15th-17th Poulsbo Viking Festival

May 16th. Bremerton Armed Forces Day Parade

May 23rd.-24th. Kitsap Harbor Festival

May 23rd. Gig Harbor Street Scramble

June 6th.-7th. Port Gamble June Faire

(anything shot at an festival that already happened this month, ie. Cinco de Mayo, Star Wars Day etc. is also fair game)

So grab that camera or phone as you are heading out to watch a parade, trying on various styles of viking horns or taking the kids to ride the carnival rides.

I am using the term “festival” pretty loosely here, any type of event that has a festive feel with a lot of people attending counts as a festival to me.

DEADLINE IS MONDAY JUNE 8th!

Entries may be uploaded via the “Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.” link over on the right hand side of this page or you may email them to me if you prefer : mreid@kitsapsun.com.

Stand-outs will be chosen and published in an upcoming print edition of the Kitsap Sun.

Here are a few from our archives from a few of the festivals listed to get you in the spirit of festival photography:

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #88: Springtime STAND-OUTS

Nice work on the Springtime theme!

I love the variety of subjects and moments that bring to mind the Spring season, as well as those who thought a little further “out of the box” than just pretty flowers.

Speaking of flowers, now I think I might have scared away a few shutterbugs from taking part in this challenge when I mentioned first that I hate photos of flowers, and then backtracked and said that I don’t REALLY hate photos of flowers but that if it’s a picture of a flower being entered than it better be a really interesting shot.

I get it, flowers are pretty, heck I snap photos of flowers occasionally. But here is the thing, every photo challenge I post regardless of the theme or technique that I am looking for I always get more than a few flower entries.

Why? Because flowers are easy to photograph. There they stand, all pretty and colorful without blinking or feeling self-conscious that someone is taking their photo.

Remember, the point of these photo challenges is to give Kitsap photo-enthusiasts a chance to have their work showcased as well as a chance to build on to their existing photography knowledge by trying different techniques etc.

To put it simply, I want to help everyone with a camera become a better photographer. And part of becoming a better photographer is getting forced out of your comfort zone to capture different subjects as well as showing the intended audience different views of even the most mundane of subjects. A quick “point and shoot” of a flower in the center of the frame is just not going to cut it.

Now throw some motion blur on the field of tulips, capture a dragonfly on a poppy or capture an extreme macro shot of the inside of a lily and that flower photo might just win me over.

Now if you only like flora photography, then please disregard this entire spiel and snap away at those blooms. Because really I get it, flowers can be very photogenic.

Okay, flower rant over, onto the “stand-outs”. Remember, there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few photos that were entered and ramble on about why they stood out to me for various reasons.

The following photos will be published in the Sunday, May 10th. edition of the Kitsap Sun.

Snow Geese Spring Migration by Jack C. Harpel
Snow Geese Spring Migration by Jack C. Harpel

Being a bit of a “bird nerd”, I couldn’t help but be drawn to this beautiful shot by Jack. I love the composition with the “V” of geese almost centered in the frame against the blank canvas of the sky. It is just a simply beautiful image.

by Steve Johnson
No Patio Left Behind by Steve Johnson

Nothing quite says the start of Springtime like patio furniture coming out of hibernation. I love this shot of Steve’s because it is clever and the fish-eye angle gives you the full scope of those chairs. I am also now thinking I need to purchase  that greenish chair because it would look so much better on my deck than the blue ones I bought last year…or the red one purchased the year before.

by Noelle Morris
Spring Mojo by Noelle Morris

This frame has wonderful and crisp detail as well as a lovely composition with the dandelions puffs in the foreground and the background. I also really like how Mojo the cat’s eyes compliment the green of the grass.

The Butterfly by Alisha Ellis
The Butterfly by Alisha Ellis

Springtime wouldn’t be the season that it is without butterflies and blooms. While I like the detail of butterfly, I do wish you could see the full profile of it. From personal photojournalist experience, I am aware that asking a butterfly to turn more toward the camera never works that well so this slight profile shot makes a fine frame.

Maori by Madison Cordero

The composition of this shot is great with the stairs leading to the bench. It’s also subtle, and maybe not even planned, but the dress of the subject almost matches the color of the bricks which is a really nice detail.

FRAMES: From The Archives- Star Wars, Fashion, Van Boogie (?) and more

This week’s melange of frames from 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1977 features a little bit of everything…

We’ve got a winter fashion shoot next to a pool (because of course why wouldn’t you shoot winter fashion next to a pool?!?!)!

We’ve got people watching various historical moments on television sets!

We’ve got some Sonics!

We’ve got some guy who apparently had a pretty bodacious van with Wile E. Coyote on the hood and went by the name of Van Boogie!

But most importantly, we have people lined up at the Roxy for A GALAXY OF THRILLS!

FRAMES: From The Archives: A 1973 box of negatives

Apologies for the hiatus of “From The Archives” posts. I vow to get into the groove of scanning the many many many many boxes (169ish) and file cabinets (4 of them) full of film from here on out.

If you would like a recap of what this “From the Archives” feature is all about, you can find the original post HERE.

Now please be aware I don’t have any cutline/caption information or stories to reference with these photos that I am posting. I only have the information that is on the negative sleeve…and sometimes it is even just a date and no other information.

If I get really really curious (I’m always curious, so what I’m really saying is if I have time) I may pop into the microfilm room and look up the edition of the paper that it ran in to get a little more information to post with it.

Here are a few of the interesting things the photographers at the Bremerton Sun photographed in 1973:

***The following ferry photos crack me up…were they filming a commuter horror movie on the Hyak because why are these people running off the boat and why does that guy with the thermos look slightly terrified?!?! Now I have never been a daily  ferry commuter so MAYBE this is still how people react when getting off the boat.***

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #88: Springtime

So yes this one is actually challenge #88, sorry I had numbered the previous challenge incorrectly.

Anywho, since the last challenge was one dealing with photo technique, I’m making this one theme oriented. And by looking out my office window… oh who am I kidding everyone knows there isn’t a window in the Photo Cave, hence the addition of “Cave” in the name…okay so by sliding my chair across the Cave and out the doorway, I can see that it is a gorgeous sunny spring day out there right now. ***I started typing this on Thursday, yes it is now Friday and the weather has turned to grey and gross…but that is still part of springtime gosh darn it!! ****

So yep your theme is “Springtime.”

This challenge is of course open to interpretation and as usual all “out of the box” thinking is encouraged. I also REALLY ENCOURAGE you to shoot the challenge in the week(s) that it is assigned since the whole point of these challenges is to get shutterbugs out there shooting new and stronger photographs but Spring has been apparent for awhile so I totally will accept photos taken earlier this year.

A quick word of advice, yes flowers are a part of springtime and yes that is probably the first thing anyone thinks of when the word springtime is uttered, but here’s the thing… I hate pictures of flowers.

Okay that was harsh, I don’t REALLY hate pictures of flowers, I’m even going to post a few in the examples below, but you better make it an interesting picture of a flower because entering a standard “point-and-shoot” shot of a flower without any interesting composition, extra subject matter, really good light etc etc is just going to cause me to sigh in exasperation and click right past it.

DEADLINE for entries will be MONDAY, May 4th.

Entries may be emailed to me meegan.reid@kitsapsun.com or by using the handy “Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.” link at the right hand side of the page. Please limit yourself to five entries. Chosen “Stand-Outs” will be published in an upcoming edition of the Kitsap Sun.

Here are a few photos from our archives that fit into the springtime theme:
