1975

Another one of Pip's brilliant ideas: Go to Flickr, type in a random year, and post your favorite photo. What I found was amazing.

That picture is incredible, and the story so sad. She not only captured him, but that whole era.

Love that picture... reminds of my own "hippie year" (I thought it would be cool) when Janice Joplin ruled my CD player, and Jimmy was on my shirt!

I have to say Erin... I am so thankful for your wonderful comments on my blog. I'm glad my words are touching someone. Yep, this is all SO new - only started in February. I'm so new at it, I didn't know how to link you to a blog post... still don't. In time, I'm sure I'll figure out all the tricks.

Much love to you!!! :)

What an amazing yet at the same time mundane story. Thanks for pointing us to it. I didn't exactly go with the challenge, but posted my own 70's picture. Your post was a great inspiration, though. I'm glad it finally forced me to scan my pic and blog about it. Cheers.
