Olan Mills

These I got in an e-mail and I have no idea who wrote the brilliant commentary. Enjoy!

Thoughtful Lance. Mirthful Lance. Two sides of a delightful coin.



That dude wore a tie for nothing.



The Purvis family made several stops along the Oregon Trail to document their six-month journey. This photo was taken just two weeks before the dysentery took Momma to Jesus.



I wanted a shot like this for my wedding. The Mrs. said no.



No Comment.



Olan Mills backdrop #4: Bucolic Meadow with Split Rail Fence. Is that an animal carcass behind her?




A pose like this will get you kicked right out of the Convention.




Bobbi wasn't the first waitress to fall for her manager, but she and Dale both got fired from Shoney's.




Dawn and her recently exhumed sister, Gorgotha, pose with Scraps.



This photo isn't discolored. The '70s really were that orange.




At the Southern Baptist Convention?




The Library might be more believable if the shelves weren't sloping downhill.




Patrick broke rank and chose drag over the bow tie.




Kenneth and his prom date.





I got a 20 that says he drives a Camaro.




Hiroshima, 1945. The last known photo of Kelli and Senor Loco.





Someone spent money on this.





Talk about a third wheel...





I'd hide my face, too, little girl.





B-52's, the early years.

They are frighteningly familiar. The typical 70's color palette was brown and orange. We had kitchen wallapaper that color!
