I have no idea who they were

I wrote thousands of stories and shot thousands of rolls of film in my 33-year career with The Indianapolis News and later with The Indianapolis Star.

Going through my archival negatives, I find I can recognize and remember about half of the people and stories, but there area a lot of images where I draw a complete blank.

Like, for instance, this couple. I think the photos date from the late 1960s or early '70s, but I have no idea who they were or why I was in their house.

But being a Cancerian with a strong compulsion to save EVERYTHING, I have no plans to throw away and of the negs.
