The WayBack Machine  

When I was a child, growing up in Berkeley, my mother was in group therapy with Joan Baez's sister, Mimi Farina.

In 1968 Mimi Farina remarried at Big Sur, in California. The groom was Milan Melvin. These are the photos I took with my Kodak Instamatic camera. After the wedding there was a Folk Music Festival. The next year, 1969, the festival was made into a documentary film Celebration at Big Sur.

Joan Baez wrote and sang Sweet Sir Galahad for the wedding.

I didn't notice that girl until I had scanned and uploaded the pictures. The computer changes the way I see things.

I had a hard time getting unobstucted shots. I was just a kid with a little camera. I have a lot of pictures with the back of peoples heads.
