She said: When I was a girl, everything was right

4

I have to admit that I don't like babies that much because they only cry, whine, and poop all day. Also, babies are a big responsibility that I don't want to have at this moment of my life. Considering this, I took a lot of photos from my childhood and asked my parents for their stories and the result was pretty funny.

A few weeks ago, I was looking for some things in a drawer of my house and I found a box full of old photos taken by my parents and my relatives. There were a lot of pictures in this box and I will show you some.

To start this story I have to show you my parents:

My dad:

My mom:

Before telling you some curiosities and show you some photos, I’d like to say that I’m really proud of my parents because they were so young when I was born, and they were very responsible and mature for being in their early 20s.

The first curiosity that I will show you is how my father and I were so similar when we were babies. It’s incredible!

Also, they told me that I was a baby who smiled a lot and they loved that!

But I could also be serious, or rather, drooling.

When I saw these photos I wonder why I only wear blue or light-blue clothing when I was a child (boy-oriented colours) and my dad told me that story. The thing is that my whole family thought that I was going to be a boy and my parents didn’t want to know my sex before I was born. A month to go before my birth, my dad couldn’t stand the waiting, so he asked the doctor whether I was going to be a boy or a girl. Of course, the doctor said: “a girl.” My dad couldn’t resist to keep the secret and when he and my mom get home they went to their room and he shouted: “It’s going to be a girl!” So the results were:

Anyway, I had some pink clothes too!

Another thing that my parents told me was that my skin was so fair that it was almost white, literally…

And of course, if there’s something that I think we all have, it’s the naked photos. Our parents always want to have some photos to embarrass us in front of our friends and partners!

The last thing that my parents told me was that when I grew up, my hair grew and it turned to be a lovely and beautiful blonde curly hair that I love, but I don’t have it like that anymore.

Short hair:

Long hair:

To finish this post I will show you some photos of the most important men in my life: my two brothers and my lovely boyfriend. In the case of my brothers, they’re much younger than me so most of the photos that we have are digital. Here are some:

My brother Juan Francisco:

Obviously I had to embarrass someone else with a naked photo

My brother Ariel:

And my beautiful and lovely boyfriend pablo_beatle:

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    My New York City Bike Ride Through Purple Eyes

    What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    Two Days and One Night in Vibrant Sapa

    For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
