Back in the days of rambling around to Grateful Dead shows with pals in various (usually Volkswagen) vehicles, cameras weren’t really part of the kit. Usually, ticket(s) if possible, contraband if practical, maybe extra clothes to accomodate climates, hopefully a few bucks.
However, as part of my documentary instincts, i hauled along a tripod and a 35mm Alpa camera for taking “family photos” in which i would cajole (with much whingeing usually) the assmebled renegades to pose, i’d hit the timer and run back (as such usually right in front) and take 1 and only 1 shot. Years later these would usually get developed.
Many are lost to the fog, however, some are gathered here for posterity and memorial.
Update: i recall the above Squaw Valley photo’s origin: Willis photographed photos of photos and send them over and I cropped/cleanup a bit. There are more from inside the show too. Whew.
A few snaps en route to Eugene 1990 show mentioned above taken with 35mm Alpa and timer along the way… love these!
One more… some fun online photo frame of Dan and I along the GD50 shows trip…
So many more from this GD50 trip to chronicle under separate cover. One of these days…
