Behind The Awkwardness: Fish Food

“When I was about 9 or 10, my mum and dad took me and my sister on holiday to Wales. My dad is the biggest wind up merchant and never happy until he can make a kid cry. On this occasion, he had convinced me that the lake was full of man eating piranha fish and 6 ft deep. This was taken by mum, you can’t see my sister laughing behind her, but my whining and protesting at the prospect of being fish food made for a good photo that’s haunted me for years. Dad has just confessed after 30 yrs that he felt bad for making me cry!”

The Curtain

“I always have to explain this picture when friends find it in the photo album.  This is me and my sisters in my Grandpa’s basement in the early 80′s.  I can’t explain the porch swing.  He fought in WWII and grabbed a flag before leaving Germany.  It was used as a curtain in his basement, but I never really thought anything of it when I was 5 years old.”

Recreating The Awkwardness

“I recreated a photo of me from 1991. Apparently 23 years is enough time to realize that you don’t believe in fairy tales anymore. Even if you dress like you are in one.”
