View Full Version : Photos from the 1986 Clyde Childress Tournament

04-22-2006, 09:53 AM

I just finished editing and uploading 55 photos I took 20 years ago at the Clyde Childress Memorial Pool Tournament. They are available for your viewing pleasure at this link: http://billporter.smugmug.com/gallery/1388452

I suggest you try the "slideshow" option by clicking on "Slideshow" in the light colored bar just above the photos. You can set the duration of the photos (the default setting is 3 seconds per photo).

I have not yet labeled the photos, but you might see how many you recognize. I believe Efren had been in this country only a few months at the time of the tournament.

You can purchase prints from the site (Smugmug), but I want you to know that I make nothing from such purchases. Smugmug is simply charging you for the prints.

Have fun!

Wow Bill! There are some really great shots in that group! I recognize most of them, having been around for such a long time myself. The group shot with Grady and Freddie, among others, is a classic! I'm definitely going to order some prints for myself! Thanks for sharing a piece of history!

Thanks, Rich. I know you have taken some pool photos, so you know it's not easy!

Great pics! It's fun to see a young Efren, Parica, and Hopkins plus the others.

Your right Bill, it is not easy and it takes a little practice. However, the digital cameras have made things better. You can see results immediately and reshoot, if necessary.
Since going digital, I don't fill the trash can with worthless negatives and bad prints. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
