She was Just Seventeen

She was Just Seventeen


She was Just Seventeen

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 12:04 PM PST

My most memorable Kodak moment has got to be the day I spent 30 minutes with The Beatles at the Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minnesota, August 21, 1965.
Beatles Road Manager Mal Evans was kind enough to snap the photos of me with "the boys," but I only got three shots.
Paul was last and when I got to him I discovered I had no more flashcubes left (my father had gone back to our car to get more, but Mal Evans came to take me to meet the Beatles before my father returned). As a result, Paul looked around for some flashcubes, but found none. Mal took the shot with available light, but it did not turn out. My loss....as Paul was my favorite at the time.
My memorable moment was made possible because of Bob Fletcher (The Beatles tailor), who was a pen pal of mine.

Naughty Twos

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 08:20 AM PST

At age two, my son was very curious and loved to get into things. In this picture (taken in 2001) he is seen wearing my husband's undershirt and looking into a box that he found in our dresser. Fortunately, I had my Pentax camera near by and captured a Kodak moment.
I always used kodak film before the age of the digital camera and kept a stock of film rolls lest I ran out. Last year, I uploaded most of my kodak film pictures onto my computer using a copying machine and was glad to see all the kodak moments captured over the years. Precious.

It's a shame Kodak is in trouble. I still shoot Kodak film, this shot taken a few days ago. Shot with a Mamiya C330 on a 120 roll of Kodak Portra 400. Self-processed using a C-41 press kit.

Growing Up with KODAK

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 06:55 AM PST

I remember the old folks calling a local photographer , "KODAKER", which until now  still a word used by localities. My parents did not own a Kodak camera back in the early years of their marriage. They would borrow or hire a photographer to take  snapshots of my birthdays,  at school and at church activities. My most memorable moments with KODAK are during my birthdays.   Most of my photos are taken at the working table of my father(who's the master cutter) at our tailoring shop (Shanghai Stylaire). So,  most of my photo backgrounds are pants or basketball shirts hanging on the wall.  Is it  fine if I tell my difficult  moments with Kodak too? These are the times when  I have not removed the film succesfully and the the film gets exposed or I run out of film.

 

 

#1 - My NANAY (mother) and I at 5 months  (October 1975)  in our neighborhood.
#2 - My first birthday, with my cousins (May 27, 1976)
#3 - My second birthday (May 27, 1977)
#4 - My third birthay (May 27, 1978)
#5 - My fourth birthday (May 27, 1979)
#6 - Oh! my first bike!
#7 - One of my memorable moments with my TATAY(father) at  St. Francis Xavier Parish Church Park
#8 - My first Holy Communion (May 31, 1982)
#9 - With my LOLO(grandfather) pinning my "with honors" ribbon during Elementary closing exercises (March 30, 1983)
#10 - My 11th birthday with my little brother (May 27, 1986)

Indiana Road Trip 1913

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 06:40 AM PST

My cousin Mary Janet in Indiana found this old family photo & sent it to me last year for our Parker archives. This is my Grandmother Lina Myrtle (Dollie) & Grandfather Grover Cleveland Parker on a jaunt (with son Tressman) on an Indiana farm road near Belle Union or Greencastle, IN. He founded a h.s. there & was its first principal, while also farming several hundred acres. They had 5 children. I used Mixbook.com & "wrote" a book using all these old family photos which other family members then ordered for their own grandchildren. I also did one for my mother's side (Butler) from Newfoundland.

Kodak Wedding Moment 1994

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 05:45 AM PST

Kodak captured the joy of my daughter's traditional Jewish wedding when she & her new husband were carried aloft by guests. She was a Resident at the U of Chicago & he was in his first eye surgery practice in Naperville, IL. I have many other Kodak moments that go back to the 1940s which our family treasures. Sad to lose this icon of the Americana landscape, yet the digital moment is now priceless too.

Flickedup.com : "'The Devil Inside" may give you nightmares

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 05:38 AM PST

Brace yourself for another exorcism movie but this one is pretty scary. A young woman sets out to uncover the truth about her mother, who, decades earlier, murdered two priests and a nun while they conducted and exorcism on her in…THE DEVIL INSIDE. The movie, shot in a documentary-style, follows Isabella (played by Fernanda Andrade) as she travels to Italy to meet up with her mother Maria (Suzan Crowley). Maria is in the hospital for the criminally insane and when mother and daughter meet all hell breaks loose, literally. Can demons seize control over humans, or is it just mental illness ? No matter what you believe we can all agree that some things just cannot be explained. The Devil Inside tackles these questions and more while delivering some genuine scary moments. While not perfect, and certainly paling in comparison to The Exorcism, this tale of possession hits way more than it misses. Following in the in the footsteps of the Paranormal Activity franchise. The movie has moments that will shock, scare, disturb, and leave you gasping. So the flick-o-meter gives The Devil Inside 4 out of five. I'm a big fan of scary movies and this is one that will scare you, no doubt. It's a trip to the dark side that is, well, worth taking. So no matter what you believe in ... say your prayers before seeing this one. We're social. Go to Facebook, type in THEBRETTSIDE, and click LIKE.

The Weta Cave Shop

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 04:23 AM PST

These photos were taken on January 01, 2012 at the Weta Cave Shop, Sky Tower, Auckland, New Zealand. The main office of Weta Workshop is situated in Wellington, a film-friendly city on the lower North Island of New Zealand. This company helped brings to life The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District 9, The Adventures of Tintin and the upcoming The Hobbit.

I was really surprised when the lady in the shop told me that all the full scale displays that I see inside the shop are official merchandize from the company and proudly made in New Zealand.

For more information about the Weta visit http://www.wetanz.com/about-us/

Note: I dont know what category will I post this, so I selected ireport at the movies.

New Years in Tohoku

Posted: 06 Jan 2012 03:55 AM PST

New Years in a tsunami disaster zone; not your typical New Years destination. For me, it was all about spending time with the people who needed it most in 2011 and so I headed north to Iwate prefecture in northern Japan to ring in the new year with the folks from the towns of Ofunato and Rikuzentakata.

Grey's Anatomy

Posted: 05 Jan 2012 10:35 PM PST

Now that the holidays are over, some of our favorite shows are back on with new episodes. Catching up with Grey's Anatomy after the last episode when Meredith and Alex were in an accident while transporting a new born baby. The other car involved had a family of five embarking on a camping trip, cut short by the accident that eventually killed both parents leaving the oldest daughter (18) as head of household to her 13 yr. old brother and 14 yr old sister. Both the brother and sister had major injuries but recovered. Alex saved the baby, showing his vulnerable side as he refused to let Arizona take him off the case.

Christina operated on Teddy's husband, she wasn't aware it was Teddy's husband because he had a sheet covering his face, Teddy felt Christina would be too nervous operating on her husband. So, when the man died on the table, Christina didn't really show any emotion since she was just doing her job, some live some die. It's when she found out who he was she became un-glued. Meanwhile, Teddy was operating on a woman's heart at the time her husband was being operated on so the staff felt she shouldn't be told her husband was dead until she was finished with the operation. Problem was, Teddy ended up needing Christina to help her in the OR. Christina didn't want to go but she did, they played around and joked around while operating for 3 hours. When the operation was finished and the patient was safe Christina called for April to sew up the patient. Christina then told Teddy that her husband had died in the OR. Teddy thanked Christina for officially letting her know then walked away.

This extremely sad episode ended with a happy note. Derek and Meredith answered the door, it was the social worker, she had their baby with her and said "she's your's". Great ending but I cried all through this episode.

Be sure to watch Thursday Nights on ABC

My Kodak Moment

Posted: 05 Jan 2012 03:30 PM PST

I have so many Kodak Moment pictures but since I had to choose, I choose this one. Taken in the 1950's, this Kodak Moment captures the total innosence of my 3 sister's and my brother and me. Kodak always stamped their name and the year on the sides of the pictures. I now use a digital camera which I can print out pictures if I choose to. I will always use Kodak paper for that.

My Mom was 26 and my Dad was 27 when this picture was taken. Can you imagine!
