For this post, I had the random idea of scrolling through my collection of photos over the years, randomly clicking on one, and seeing if I could remember what was going on in the photo.
If I have enough fun writing this, I may do it again another time. I have collected a lot of photos.
Let’s get into it.
1st Picture – Dated September 2008
What’s with my face?? In this period was where my sister first got her digital camera, so we would just suddenly take photos of each other, I’m thinking that’s what happened. I can see that I’m holding my ancient mp3 player. It could hold only 60 songs, and I loved it so much. I’m also holding a trash bag? As you can see, I have that same beige cardigan, it really has been with me forever. Also, it seems my sister and I have taken over the dining table with study things.
Picture 2 – Dated August 1992
No, I don’t remember this. But according to the time stamp, I wasn’t even 1 yet. It seems we were having breakfast, and someone gave me a newspaper hat. Looks pretty good one me to be honest. We were such cute kids.
Picture 3 – December 2013
A non-me photo. I do remember taking this though! It was our last trip to Blenheim for the Christmas holidays. We always hit Rarangi beach. It’s such a gorgeous spot, so blue. I was just taking photos of everything, and Andrew was just standing there. Probably afterwards he realised what I was doing, and protested about being photographed.
Picture 4 – October 2007
I vaguely remember this. I remember the trip anyway. We went to visit Napier and Hastings with another family. It was a really fun trip, and meant a few days off school. Mum wanted a family photo, so we all posed around this statue. I ended up climbing it for whatever reason, and made that face. Now it’s on the internet forever.
Picture 5 – Dated August 2007
Another 2007 photo. Jo loved that camera. We all did really. This would be with my church group, we went for years, and about 7 of us were similar in age, so we would all run around together. One of us was the oldest at 19 so we could leave the church and go to the nearby school’s playground. I believe this is me swinging off the monkey bars. I can see my little brother in the back in the purple hoodie.
So that’s it! This was actually really fun! I’ll probably do another one sometime, and make it another series. But I’ll space it out. Like I said, we have taken a lot of photos over the years, and they’re all backed up. I enjoy trips down memory lane 🙂
What about you guys? Do you have a lot of photos from when you were growing up?
