When a box is marked “Weekly”, Joel refers to submissions for the Pacific Weekly, a College of Pacific Student Newsletter.
It is not clear if any of these negatives were actually published in the Pacific Weekly, but I’ve seen some of them end up in the COP yearbook, The Naranjado. (Most often without giving credit to Joel.)
The subject tonight is another swimming event, this is most likely an SJC event but there could be few COP images in it as well. Both had independent swim meets.
Showing the images in the order they’re retrieved out of the box … the good, bad and the ugly.
Next two images could be considered duds, but Joel tried something here and it just didn’t work out as intended. Shutter timing is off in one image and the hands are out of the frame in the other. He could only know for sure after development. Pretty sure he would have taken a third shot if possible.
Last image in the box is a double exposure of some heavy equipment in a mine or agricultural setting or so. We’ve seen a few images from Joel related to mines and farming, so I’ll keep it at that as an educated guess till we find more evidence of similar equipment in a different box.
The above image was printed, so Joel must have felt that it had meaning to him as an “abstract”.
