Very cool.

Have you ever really looked at your hand, man?

Nice, some of the candid people shots are really beautiful especially the monochrome, really great moment-in-time captures; can live without the 'studio artistic' efforts although I guess they are accurately representative of the times.

Jerry Brown was cute when he was young. : >

it's so funny how dated it all is, tho--and sad.

Don't all the girls look *fantastic*?. Man, I wish I'd been 20 in 1968, instead of 2.

Wow, what a find!

Simply stunning, really captures the vibe of the era. I even like how some of the early color shots have the telltale "reddening" that was part of many late-60's to early-70's color film processes.

One of the best pics of Dennis Dunnaway from that era that I've ever seen.

There's some great photography there. I wish I were that good...

Sunny is teh hawt. There was a chick who looked and dressed like her on my university residence floor back in '92, and pretty much every guy in the building fell for her. There must be something about hippy chicks with big, sad eyes that (straight) guys find irresistable.

Excellent! Very evocative of the era, even though I was growing up in PA/NJ, not California. Thanks srboisvert.

Has anyone read Ellen Forney's "I Was Seven in '75"? - a comic strip these images remind me of. It is collected in one volume as "Monkey Food"
