Dates:1/1/1969 - 12/31/1987
Album Info:You will find lots of variety in my B&W photos as these photos were taken in my youth from the age of 13 through 30. You may spot a few modern day photos converted into B&W to give that back in the old day look effect. I shot lots of B&W photos in this time period and went to all color only by 1987
