My 31 day blog challenge – day 8 – “an old photo of you”.
Old photos are very precious. Nowadays, we can take dozens, or even hundreds, at a time, and see the results instantly. You don’t even need a camera these days, cameras are just as good. Remember when you had to buy a film, load it into your camera, the. When you had taken all the shots, usually 24 or 36, you had to take them to a shop to be developed, or send them off and wait a week or two for the photos to be returned. We then normally put the, carefully into an album.
I don’t have many photos of when I was very young. As I have moved house so many times, 44 houses at the last count, photo albums have been lost, or destroyed. So the few I have are very precious.
This is one of the earliest photos of me, quite a bald baby! Taken before my first birthday……
In the next photo I am aged around two, with my father, in RAF uniform, building a snowman in our back garden.
The next one is me, aged around two, with my mother and father.
The photo above was taken on a family trip to London Zoo, circa 1962-3.
The photo below is of my mother, father (wearing strange hat), my aunty Margaret, cousin Janet and my brother Philip.
A bit more up to date – here’s a photo of me, aged 14 or 15, at boarding school, 1970!
And finally, one from around 1982 – me and my two daughters, who are now aged 39 and 35!
That’s enough embarrassing photos for one day!
