The “It” Factor

“I found these while going through old photo albums this weekend. Halloween 1979, I was a canvas for my older sister’s creativity. And clearly, I was thrilled about it. And yes, clowns freak me out 37 years later!”

Renaissance Regrets - AFP Hall Of Fame

Renaissance Regrets

“I lived in Luxembourg as a kid so my family did a lot of traveling in the five years we lived there. I was going through some old family photos this weekend and found the ones from our trip to Italy. In looking through the pictures, it was obvious that my siblings and I were not happy campers on this trip as we all refused to smile in every picture. However, this picture and the look on my face says it all! I’m sure my Dad thought it was hilarious to have his eight-year-old daughter pose in front of a fat naked man sitting on a turtle.

The statue is ‘The Fountain of Bacchus’, sculpted in 1560 by Valerio Cioli. He used Duke Cosimo I’s court dwarf as the model for Bacchus. If you want to see the statue today, or take your own picture with it, it’s at the Boboli Gardens in Florence, Italy.”
