“Taken probably in 1996.  To this day, I’m still questioning how my mom and hairdresser thought this ‘do was a good look for picture day at school.  And combine it with pre-braces teeth…”

“My older step-sisters had given me this shirt that I never understood at the time but because they gave it to me, I loved it. I realized many years later what the shirt meant and then started remembering the looks I would get from teachers & adults when I wore the shirt. Why they allowed me to wear it as my Grade 7 class picture, I’ll never know but I’ve got a great story as the result of it.”

“My brother & I were none too pleased with the attire or arrangement of the photo. I was a HUGE tomboy who told her she could dress me up but could NOT make me smile. My brother was mad she put the younger/smaller brother in the higher position.”

“When I was growing up, my dad was an amateur beekeeper.  When a large swarm appeared in our backyard, Dad posed the neighbor Kenny and me (age 4) in front of it, for perspective I suppose.  Those are finger puppets on my hands.  We have other photos where we are standing even closer, but those didn’t come out as well.”
