Back to my blog | Photos by Jay Heiser | That 70s Show | Bay High School 1976-1978

In 2006, I found a moldy box of negatives in my parents crawlspace. After months of scanning and some cleaning up in Photoshop, the result is about 2600 images from 1976-8.  The gallery 'Favorites' below includes copies of the ones I like the best. I FOUND MORE PICTURES IN FEB 2010, SO THIS GALLERY IS STILL NOT FINISHED.  Longer explanation in my blog.

One of the pleasant surprises associated with the rediscovery of all these old negatives is the degree to which it provides a time capsule, a view into the past. This part of the gallery consists of things, objects, gifts, appliances, clothing, that were typical of the time. Many of these were taken as part of a yearbook spread on things that we expected to be taking with us to college. One December afternoon, editor Sue Fain dragged me all over a Sears store taking pictures of things that we might be getting for the Christmas before college. Film was expensive, and time was short, and I only had one shot at most of these items, which ended up as postage stamp sized photos in the 1978 BHS yearbook.

On Thursday 21 May, 1978, the parents of the graduating Bay High Seniors put on a variety show that spoofed the students and staff. With moms in Hockey jerseys and dads in pompoms, it was  hilarious, and at times, politically incorrect.  I'd totally forgotten that I'd taken these pictures, and I'm not sure if anyone has ever seen them before. Comments welcome and expected. You can read more about this on my blog.

Sports photography was never my strongest discipline, and some of my pictures have been lost. Hockey represents the majority of my sports work, and those pictures have been uploaded in March 2010 for the first time. The rest of the sports shots will follow shortly.
