I found some amazing old black and white photographs taken by one or the other of my uncles today. I knew they did a lot of photography back in the day but had never seen their actual work. All I can say is wow!
I found this one (above) of me when I was about 3 or 4.
I think I was seeing what it would be like to have no neck…
…either that or I had done something naughty and was trying to look virtuous.
Failed there I think. The eyes give it away.
How amazing to be able to capture a look in a small child’s eye and in such a simple and beautiful way. The whole thing has me guessing the story behind it.
Who knew I had masters who could teach me photography here, under my nose, all this time?
Looking back on talent to learn for the future.
