On Prom Night

I have to say, I am so glad I did not go to a single Prom night during my high school years, ever.  I know some folks might say I missed out on a true ritual or rite of passage.  That's ok.  After looking at this photo of unknown teens with their ruffles and balloons, I am sure I missed nothing!  Yet, I do love this photo.  It captures a classic time and place.  I'm guessing this is 1970's or 80's.

2 Dancers

Here are a couple of very happy dancers! Great image, love his shirt, love her glasses!  I don't know anything about them.  This photo was in a large box of photos I bought at a sale that was very curious to me.  It was in a small town outside of Austin, in a large metal storage building.  I could not figure out what happened to the family.  It was as if they were on this earth and then, all of them were gone and all that was left was a storage space full of personal effects, art supplies (I think they had a frame shop) and mechanic supplies and a huge supply of mesquite wood for BBQ.  I bought a lot( including the box of photos) the first day, then everything was free on the last day of the sale.  Needless to say, I went back and got more good junk. One doesn't come across sales like this very often.
