Photo History

This post is to describe some of my online photo albums, other than family pictures, in order to help people find them via web searches.

I'm spending a lot of time digitizing old photos and negatives, including performing color-correction, and there are lots more to come! Since they're hosted on Google's PicasaWeb, you can "subscribe" to one or more albums, and you'll get an email letting you know when something's been added to those albums.

So, if you were a part of Maranatha Campus Ministries (also known as Maranatha Christian Fellowhip) in Rome, Georgia; Atlanta, Georgia; Auburn, Alabama; or Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, then you may be in for some pleasant memories. And just to help the keyword searches, this is the Maranatha associated with Bob Weiner, which began in Paducah, Kentucky, and later moved its headquarters to Gainesville, Florida, and which published the Forerunner newspaper.

Other albums provide photos of Wesley Southern Methodist Church, in Rome, Georgia; Coosa High School (a few miles west of Rome, Georgia), primarily over the years 1972-1977, and some scenes from in and around Rome, for those who might like some sentimental reminders of their days in The City of Seven Hills.

The lastest album up is for Bethany Fellowship (a.k.a. Bethany Missionary Church, and Bethany Fellowship Missionary Training Center), in Bloomington, Minnesota, just outside of Minneapolis.

Of course, I'll be discussing these organizations, particularly some of the strengths and weaknesses of Maranatha, and highlighting some of the photos on future episodes of John TV. So, "stay tuned..."

Photos, photos!

John, I can't believe I found this blog. I have viewed your old pics and got a real kick out of them. Here is my blog site, I haven't written anything for a while, but you can see pics of Annie and I (and our son) if you look around.

Say hello to Carla for me!
