David Smile


I also talk about this picture in PhotoCritical from the perspective of the film used. David cooperatively posed for me in our kitchen while I practiced my bounce flash technique. I regret that I used Polaroid slide film. Its quality is really inferior to what was available at the time. It’s only in retrospect that I realize that I missed a special moment. Well, not really missed. I do wish I could process this image but there’s not enough quality in the original. What a wonderful smile! It was a special moment that passed. Looking back you can only realize how special it was after time has passed.
