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

And my beautiful and lovely boyfriend pablo_beatle:

    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.

    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.

    Five Days, Four Kinds of Film and Three Cameras on the French Riviera

    It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.

    How (Not) to Make It in New York

    Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
