Wow, you're older than me! BTW, this is special.
Love this! Guess you always had the knack. Wonderful shot.
The camera was an Agfa Sillette, an inexpensive fixed lens thing. Can't remember anything else I'm afraid, though it was probably an Ilford film. As for the year, I think that George Washington was president then !
Because you had very good reason for taking it at the time. I think it's great that you should dig out some of your early negs. This is a gem and probably unique among PNet stock. And, er, how about the year, camera, and film :)

I love the composition and the expression on the kids' faces,full of amusement and mischief.
Maybe they are looking at a book of John's other photographs. --Lannie
Amazing and pure strong emotions. Amazing work for 12 years old! Love it!
wow i like the composition and the expression very much...
Good Shot John. I once wore an outfit like the one on the right. Long trousers were for dress-up and all of us, just like the kids in this image had bruises, scabs and scars on our knees (One particularly large one I still have, and probably shut have been stitched shut, but back then..)
This is a great shot! Very nostalgic. Their grins are priceless.
I was amused yesterday to come across this shot of the Beatles !
Was it Playboy ? I guess I was around 12 when I took this of my schoolfriends. Goodness knows why I am posting it !
