Photographer's Note

I know this is in no way a great shot and nothing I would show if it had been recently taken. But this is most likely from the very first roll of colour film I ever used.

This is from Waterford, a small town in southern Ireland, in the summer of 1968, almost 44 years ago. I hitch-hiked around the whole island with a friend after we had just left the Swedish army, where we had wasted 11 months doing our national military service.

I have no memory at all of this particular photo, but most of the journey remains strongly in my memory. We had a great time and met a lot of interesting people who offered us rides or bought us beer in the local pubs. I was certain I would return to Ireland very soon, but for strange reasons I have never gone back.

This was scanned from a slide, an Agfacolor as far as I can recall. I used a very cheap and simple camera but I don't remember what kind.
