When coming back from my morning wander in the swamp, I often drive up the along the river in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. If I go to the troll park*, I pass a Catholic School. On a recent morning this was happening on the front lawn.
Socially distanced, school photos in the open air, on the front lawn. Very different from the dark hallways that our school photographer preferred to set up in. I remember the corduroy shirt with the rawhide lacing. It was soft and warm and I chewed on the ties. As I recall, much my mother's horror I wore it for school photos two years in a row.
Do you have any good school photos?
* The troll park is under a bridge, not a place I go to troll.
Well a old favorite was the one where I mooned the camera.....ReplyDelete
Making our mothers so proud!Delete
School photos do all seem to be uniformly horrible, don't they!ReplyDelete
I never understood why?Delete
nope, I got rid of all that crap after my divorce in 1991. fresh start and all that jazz.ReplyDelete
Better then reliving the unpleasant times in life.Delete
Well, I wouldn't call any of my school photos "good," but I do have a couple, plus a couple of class pix. I would love to have that shirt now (I'd replace the chewed lacing, I think).ReplyDelete
I have a collection of High School Yearbooks, still most of school, I would prefer to forgetDelete
I have quite bad old school photos. Your school photo makes you look like a boy who needs his cheek pinching.ReplyDelete
I needed to pinch something,Delete
And I don't have any of those school photos, now that I think about it. My mom used to have all the photos and I never asked for any.
I think that school had the right idea, though. Natural light may make for much better pics.
I have most of them, when we sorted out my parents house, my sister filled folders with photos for each of us, she did a great job (not easy to do.)Delete
Always such a cutie! I like the idea of outdoor photos; anything would help a school photo.ReplyDelete
I don't recall seeing many of yours.Delete
I like your photoReplyDelete
Thanks to my late mother I have heaps of childhood photos.
Can't wait to see themDelete
I do have one or two somewhere around here. And like you, they were never taken outdoors.ReplyDelete
Sorting my parents photos, I found baby pictures I never knew existed. The forth of four, the novelty of baby pictures had worn off.Delete
