Photography class I took at BYU

In 1980 Wayne and I both took Photography 101 at BYU, during different semesters.  Here are some of the pictures I took with a single reflex lens film camera for that class, and developed in the dark room.

Wayne's house, 1964-1980

Wayne's parents built this house in Doraville, Georgia after Wayne's dad got his job in Atlanta with the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation, with the National Park Service. It had a full basement.

Family Reunion, Bryce Canyon, 1964

 Wayne's family was living in Atlanta in 1964, so they traveled west to a family reunion.
I was surprised to see this picture of Wayne up so high in this tree (he has on the red stripes).
When he climbed trees with my children for family pictures, I didn't know it was already a family tradition from when he was a child.

Here is what he wrote about this picture:

" The climbing tree looms large in my memory of this family reunion.
As you can see, I'm right at the very top!  I loved the feeling of
climbing so high.  I would climb right up into the very smallest
branches of the top of the tree.
  One of the cousins (Jan's son I think) brough some monster figures
(small plastic statuettes).  We played with those a lot, too.  I think
that is one that I'm holding up in one hand at the top of the tree.
I loved playing with them.  In the portrait of the family I am holding
his werewolf figure in front of me to make sure it got in the picture.
We don't have that photo here, but I remember seeing it with me and
that little toy.

  We also liked to play in the gulches and forest behind the camp.  One
day Laura Bennett and I were "galloping" around in the woods near camp
playing cowboys and indians.  When we got back to camp, we heard that
her little sister, Theresa, had just fallen out of the tree.  We rushed
over to the picnic table under a dining fly where she lay.  Whether it
is true or not, my memory of the event was that she had on stretch
pants with those little loops that run under the foot (pedal pushers?).
One of those was broken.  Unfortunately, so was one of her arms.  They
had to take her to Panquich to get to a doctor to help her.
  From what I heard, she wasn't hurt worse because she kind of bounced
from one limb to the next as she fell.  So, no single fall was enough
to hurt her too badly.
  I can't remember whether I was allowed back in the tree or not.
All I know is that I had a lot of fun while I could!"  WRW

Wayne's family: Living in Atlanta in 1963

 L to R: Brian, Wayne.
This is the era in Wayne's life when he was beating up other kids.  A boy did something really bad, and Wayne chased him to the boy's doorstep.  The boy yelled to his mother, "Mother, those Winsor boys are bothering me again!" and just as the mother came outside, Wayne punched him right in the nose.

Here is a picture taken on a Sunday, where they attended the church on Ponce de Leon Drive. Wayne is on the right, he is about seven.

Toy pedal car

Here are Wayne and his siblings.  You can see the little pedal car behind them.

While Wayne and his family were living in Bryce Canyon National Park, they owned this little pedal car.  Wayne remembers watching his older brother, Brian, riding the toy car out in the road as a real car came along and drove right over him.  Brian ducked and was just fine!

(Wayne is on the swing, front left, Marilu is behind him.  Brian is on the swing on the right, Mark is behind him.)

Cutest pictures of me

Six months old.

I think I look very satisfied with myself here.  I've got my purse, my baby doll, and my cowboy hat, so what else could I want?  You can see my dad's horse trailer and our swingset behind me.

I was probably a little bit younger than this, when I was looking in the mirror, and my mother asked me what I was doing.  I said, "Me look at meself, and me pretty."

Lu and Wickie over the years (Wayne's parents)

 I don't have any of the dates, so I am guessing.  Here is their wedding picture, around 1948.
 This could be in the 1970's.

 At our wedding, in June 1980.

At home in Gig Harbor, Washington, around 1993.
