    Here are my 5 submissios: the 2 b&w vintage ones are from kathi's family album: her father when he was young and then her grandfather and his siter as children, back to 1903!!
    For the color ones, it's me with my brother, I the first one was for the 5th birthday party of my brother and the 2 others are from my baptism ceremony... It seems that I wasn't very happy this day even in my "little lord" costume"....
