Today's assignment: YOUNGER YOU.
I don't have a lot of pictures of myself from when I was younger, other than school photos. (and I'm too lazy to try and figure out where those are stashed.)
I grew up in a time when you still had to pay for film to put in your camera, could only take the number of pictures your length of film would allow (with one or two bonus frames, if you were lucky), had to pay to develop each and every picture, and you had to buy a photo album if you wanted other people to see your pictures. Any one else remember those days? Show of hands?
So anyways... my POINT is, I didn't waste a lot of frames on pictures of myself.
I did find a few, but in scanning the prints, none came out very clear. It's tough to tell my age from these photos, but I'm obviously immature and have a thing for posing on beaches!
On the left, I am somewhere in the neighbourhood of 16-17 years old. This photo was taken at one of my dad's family's annual summer gatherings. A bunch of us female cousins decided we had what it took to be models. You see the potential there, too, right? RIGHT??!
::dang, more crickets::
On the right, I am precariously balancing on the southernmost tip of Canada at Point Pelee National Park in the summer of 1994, right around my 22nd birthday. Incidentally, this trip to Ontario to visit a friend was my reason for missing the previously mentioned annual family gathering that year ~ the first of only three I've ever missed.
But it obviously doesn't matter if I'm in attendance or not, I WILL be posing on a beach somewhere while that family gathering is going on!
