I remember taking this photo. The lighting was dim, so I had to use a
slow shutter speed, 1/15 of a second, without a tripod. I rested the
camera on my knee. Later, I was pleased to see how well it came out,
only slightly blurred.
I made an enlargement, but it wasn't used in the yearbook, and I don't remember what happened to the print.
Forty years later, I looked at the 1973 Olympiad yearbook posted at
classmates.com, and found that this picture was picked up and used by
the yearbook staff, a year after I left high school.
