the summer of ’69

First Born – Summer 1969

Toronto. “the summer of 69” is a line in the Bryan Adams song of the same name released as a single in 1985 (and on the album Reckless a year earlier). In later years, Adams took up the profession of photography as well.

1969 was quite a year all in all. My first child was born. I won first prize with this portrait of her and a nurse in a gloomy night-time hallway at The Montreal General using my Exakta bought about a decade earlier.

Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.  And in 1969, the first photographs ever taken on another celestial object were recorded. It was a momentous year!
