Bob Diaz was head photographer on the yearbook staff during the 1970-1971 school year. I had an Olympus Pen FT camera, which is a half-frame camera that uses only half of the usual 35 mm frame size. So you can get 72 pictures per roll of film, instead of 36. Bob liked to play around with my Olympus and take lots of pictures with it, justifying the film/processing expense by saying "but it's only half frame!" He took the pictures with the pen marks drawn along the bottoms of the contact prints. That's him resting on the desk.
