On November 19, 1976, Anna and I went to Jimmy Carter's home town of Plains, Georgia. Jimmy had just be elected president and that was a good excuse to try out my new 35mm Minolta Camera I had bought recently.
Of course we had wanted to capture the outside of the president-elect's home and maybe the president-elect himself, but that didn't happen.
But we did get his mother Lillian Carter and his brother Billy Carter images captured on film, which made the trip worthwhile.
Since then I have had at least two, maybe more blog posts about the pictures.
Now, the cat is out of the bag or the beans have been spilled: Some of my Plains pictures taken in 1976 will be in a Arcadia book about Plains. Up until now I was keeping my mouth shut because I didn't know how committed it was, but apparently it is.
Bob Buccellato is putting the book together for Arcadia Press. Bob contacted me for permission to use the pictures
Here are a few of the pictures that will probably be in the book (if I was doing the selecting).
Mrs. Lillian Carter is the white-hired lady, Billy Carter is wearing a red jacket, and his service station speakd for itself.
