This photo was found in a drawer in a classroom of the alternative high school I attended. Since the school lacked funding, prom photos were taken by teachers with students posing in front of cheap backdrops. I’m not sure if the double exposure was an accident or done intentionally by a student in the darkroom.
I found this Polaroid face down in the trunk of a car at the junk yard while looking for some parts. When I turned it over, all I could think was LOOK AT THAT HAIR! I graduated in 1984 and it appears that they went to the prom four years later and I wondered how we even thought that big hair was cool. No, I did not find the parts I was looking for; but, I got this fine photo.
After poring through my archives, I found the companion photo photo for “Piano Man,” which was Find of the Day for Nov. 10, 2006. This appears to be part of some play, where the young man in the previous photo was impressing the ladies with his piano chops. Here, he appears to be escorting one of the ladies to the prom.
