Today’s #blogtober16 prompt is ‘An Old Photo of Me’ however I had a lot of fun looking over some old photos and couldn’t choose just one! Please bear with me, these are photos of photos so the quality is questionable. Digital cameras were not as easily accessible in the old days of my youth!
So this is a little on the blurry side isn’t it? But this is me. I had that same hair for about six years, it seriously wouldn’t grow and then it just went brown. No wonder I colour my hair now! I think I was about two or three here, sitting in my grandparents back garden. I’m not quite sure what I’m wearing to be honest but I wasn’t old enough to dress myself.
This is the brown hair. Again, I had that hairstyle for pretty much all of primary school life until I turned eleven and thought growing it would be fun! I am the one on the left, my little sister Leah is the smaller one. I think this was when she first started school so she must have been about four…making me almost nine!
Here I am, age 16, red dress and black hair at my school prom! There really was a day I used to be slim! That’s probably why I got away with sitting on my friends without killing them.
This is like a toddler selfie isn’t it? Sort of awkward half up the nose shot. Honestly without a front facing camera we had no idea what photos would look like. The kids today just do not feel the struggle! I believe I was seventeen here (lip piercing as a sign of rebellion after leaving school) and was just about to start college. This was ten years ago but it feels like an absolute lifetime ago.
So there we have it! Several old photos of me from my childhood!
