Someone else’s images

Scan-140519-0009 quarry

I have a few old black and white negatives in my archives that were shot by someone else.

One set of images was shot by my college friend Steve Power at a nude beach in California when he was there for the Summer of Love in 1967.

The others – photo coverage of a Miss Nude America contest at the Naked City nudist resort near Roselawn, Ind., and surreptitious photos of Indiana University students skinny dipping in a Bloomington, Ind. limestone quarry – somehow came into my possession at The Indianapolis News, presumably shot by staff photographers. I don’t remember anything about how I got them, so I can’t credit them.

Here’s one of the I.U. photos that is suitable for publication here without the use of black bars over troublesome body parts.
