Our 35mm slides have now been scanned and a theme has appeared…headlessness. With digital cameras these shots would be deleted, but I think they have a charm of their own.
I think the subject may have actually been the fish, and not me.
In this one Dad lost his head.
It was my cousin’s turn to lose her head this time.
My head was obviously considered unnecessary in the photo above. My sister appears to wearing the dress I had on in yesterday’s post…and how could you not love my brother’s bow tie? He wouldn’t be caught dead in one now.
We grew up at the beach and the seaside was a regular backdrop for family photos.
I love the next one of my brother…he went on to become a really good surfer…among other things.
Dad built several boats and went deep sea fishing most weekends, or took us out on the bay.
Eating was another theme.
In the series of photos below we were having a picnic beside a waterfall in the mountains.
I had my doll and my brother had a boat.
The boat was carefully placed into to the water, and minutes later disappeared over the waterfall.
My Dad did have a head, and he usually had a cigarette or a fish in his hand, sometimes both.
I have to show you a photo of dad and his fishing mates with a good catch.
