My sister sent me this picture from long ago of my wife using my old 10 speed Schwinn Varsity to pump water. That was when we were young and more energetic…probably about 40 years ago. Since then, we’ve hooked up solar…much less work.
Footnote…The first photo is a black and white which I had developed in my little darkroom. I’m sure I made some 8 x 10’s and sent them to Mom and Dad to show off our pioneering efforts. Recalling all the work that went into the darkroom, using different photo papers to get more contrast, hours of trying to get the perfect exposure with the enlarger, tray development, it’s a marvel to be able to perform all those functions and more on my laptop…40 years later. Thank you digital photography!!!
