Apparently, this week was the anniversary of the first drive in.
Even though I haven’t been to a drive in movie theater in years, I still remember the great times we used to have trying to sneak friends in the trunk past the ticket taker, then finding a spot to park, hanging the little aluminum speaker on the door and watching some B movie on a huge outdoor screen.
The movie sometimes was good, often it wasn’t but watching it wasn’t really the reason we were there. Like a lot of kids and adults, for me making out during the movie was the main reason we were there!. But that”s another type of blog post.
I made this image of a drive in somewhere in Nebraska, back when I didn’t take very good notes about where I was shooting.
This image is part of my High Plains portfolio – a series of images I made, while travelling through the High Plains and Rocky Mountains of the United States.
