I think Pareen started this, so here is my contribution. 1976 is as close as I can get because most of my photos were on slides in those days. Taken in Tokyo in March 1976 on my first trip to Japan, I am with my penpal Tomoko, and in the background is a stadium built for the Olympics. This was printed on textured paper, so the clarity has suffered a bit in scanning. Cropped and tweaked in Paintshop
Hand-held Sekonic L8 lightmeter used to set the camera exposure.

Yaay! You joined in too! This is so great to see. I remember that textured paper as most of my Instamatic photos were printed on it. Thanks for sharing Roger!

Kombizz, unfortunately I lost contact with the penpal. It seems her parents were worried that she might want to marry me, and I am sure they influenced her decision to cease contact with me.

wonderful!
I love the little girls suit,
she looks so smart.
and you too look very dashing
it is lovely to see these old pictures
I was also in the photo slide club
we thought we were so modern with those slides
didn't we
and I suppose we were.
I know it was an expensive hobby in those day
thank goodness for the digital camera

I've also been rumaging through my "oldie" and the quality of mine is very poor.
Nice reminder of your holiday

Very sweet picture, particularly with the story. You look a bit more relaxed than Tomoko, but still echoing her pose to some extent.
Pareen has really started something...!

Wonderful shot. We have a friend in Japan called Tomoko too; I wonder if the name is the equivalent of Mary or something like that here.
