In 1984, the Olympic torch relay for the Los Angeles games ran down my street in Tustin, California. My family all went out to watch it, and at the age of 8 I took this photo with a Kodak Instamatic. It was the first time I successfully tracked the movement of a subject.
I remember that day RT @KelsonV: 1984 Olympic Torch Runner. Somehow 8-year-old me tracked his motion with an Instamatic http://t.co/uYCRrnqc
@KelsonV Very cool.
Nice one. Even nicer that you STILL have it.
Thanks! And yeah, now that you mention it, it is kind of amazing that I still have it after all this time — and could find it. I guess maybe there is something to that whole “put them in albums” thing I stopped doing in college. 🙂
