View Full Version : Post a picture from your Prom - Past or Present

Sorry for sort of a double post. After the request of childhood photographs (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=2406748&) and what I could offer on short notice - I thought why not have a Prom thread of pics.

This is the text I left in that other thread:

Best I can do at this point is from my Prom in 1976. Since my move last year from my TH to an apartment - so much of my younger days is buried in boxes somewhere here. :eek:

(Just a note that does not come through in the picture. My Tux was a forest green "textured" tux. Think a forest green couch. :eek: Very "in" at that time, and coordinated with my date's dress. We even arrived in my Mom's metallic green '72 Dodge Duster. :eek: :eek: )

I hope that I am around 30 years from now to see what you all think of your Prom pictures. As I mentioned, my Prom was in a different time for style. :) :eek:

Make note of the "rose colored" glasses that I wore at the time. :eek: :eek:

No pictures, here, as I skipped my high school prom (class of 1984). I didn't care for my high school and I cared for dancing even less.

Thanks for sharing. This almost looks like a movie studio "shot". Why do I think of Napoleon Dynamite? Or did I miss the joke since I have not seen the movie?

Never cared for most of my HS years. But I went with the person that meant the most at the time (well sort of - that is for a different Prom thread). In my case I look back at this picture with fond memories.

For not seeing the flick, you are dead on. That is why I commented about the picture the way I did; as "Gosh" was one of his catrch phrases.

I meant it from the point of who we see ourselves as. :) In another thread I was taken by your choice of a name here. But not wanting the law to come sown on me, I decided to be nice. :) I could go further, but I won't publicly. :)

Anyway, I cannot believe that you took pictures of all the things you took pictures of! Did the people you were with think you were strange, or did they whip out their handicams as well? :confused: :D

they're used to me taking pictures of "odd" stuff. I didn't take many pictures, as I was scared that I would break it. I was shakin' it so hard I was afraid I would break it.. ;):p

also, remember... fine arts school. We all take pics of dumb stuff. :rolleyes:

Some of us were lucky to have just one Prom. :) Though my "younger" GF at the time had been to two other Proms.

Strange circumstances for my Prom. The Prom date in the photo posted was one that I had a crush on - and had dated in the past. The gal I was most interested in was a year behind me and my date.

But no where as serious as the "second" being my Prom date. Though they were rivals in the theater group in HS :eek: . It was the "runner-up" that I spent the summer with and my first year at college "courting". She was was the first true love. :)

Well in Germany there is no such thing as a Prom. Well there is, but there's none of the pressure on having dates etc. as there is in the US.

I understand after my recent visit to Iceland. A different set of values between countries. In Iceland I was told that there is no stigma attached to unwed mothers.
