Proof sheet, clip, negatives and assignment sheet from 1982 story on 4-H program in Thousand Oaks.
Yes, after 25 years, I’m back working at the Thousand Oaks News Chronicle - sort of.
I'm spending Wednesdays volunteering at the Thousand Oaks Library. There I'm working on the News Chronicle photo collection.
Back in 2012, I donated some News Chronicle negatives to the Thousand Oaks Library. My first chore as a volunteer - going back through my donation.
Proof sheets and negs get separated. Nasty staples and old glassine film envelopes trashed. The negs get placed in acid free envelopes. Captions and metadata get entered into a computer data file.
I’ve finished my first month. In my future are more white glove work with old negs, scanning and microfilm research.
For several years, many of the Thousand Oaks Library Special Collections images have been posted on Flickr. As of today, the two most recent Conejo Through the Lens flickr posts are from a 1971 Kazoo parade by Bob Pool.
My thoughts on images past and present.
