When I saw the title of this post, I have to admit, I was a bit nervous. The thought of having my face plastered across the internet makes me nervous, which is why, on Facebook, I only have 1 photo of myself, and only 2 others (that I can think of) online at all. I hate having my photo taken, I never know what face to pull and feel like I look goofy or awkward most of the time. Whilst searching for ideas I came across this photo and knew it was the one I wanted to use.
I'm (obviously) the little girl in the middle, with my brother Earl and my Nana. I was around 2 years old in this photo and it was taken at my childhood home in South Wales. As you can see, the fence behind me is broken where we used to climb out of the garden, needless to say my parents weren't thrilled about that, but it was quicker than using the gate, and when you're a child every second counts. You don't want to miss the start of hide and seek!
I don't have many photos of myself, my brother and my Nana together, so I really treasure this one. The thing that strikes me most about this photo, is how much I look like my Nana now, obviously she wasn't as pale as me, but other than that I look more like her than either of my parents. I remember that phone too, clearly being addicted to a phone isn't a recent thing, maybe I can blame it on my childhood.
Do any of you feel uncomfortable having your picture taken? Please tell me I'm not the only one as with the selfie being everywhere, it can feel like that.
