From the John Scalzi files...
Your Monday Photo Shoot: It's back to school season. Show us a picture of something that represents "Back to School" to you. Kids on their way to school, a stack of new text books, school supplies, parents leaping for joy... oh, wait, maybe not that last one.
Don't be afraid to reach back into the archives for this one; if you've got a great "back to school" photo from 1975, bring it on. I could show you a picture from my own back to school days -- the one from second grade, when I was dressed in pink denim from head to toe -- but no. No. And stop looking at me like that. It was the 70s. And my mom dressed me. Take it up with her.
Take or scan the photos, upload them into your blog or journal, and come back here to leave a link. And welcome back to another year of school!
Well John, they say confession is good for the soul, but...pink denim?
Okay, believe it or not I have only one photo (on my computer) fitting of this theme. I wasn't wearing denim on this day and can't tell if the dress is pink (back then, girls did not...I repeat...did not wear slacks/jeans/pants to school, we always wore dresses); there is something to be said for the good ol' days of b & w film, ya know.
Lovely pose I've struck there. And the collar...oh lordy! Would have been even better had I been wearing saddle shoes. I did have a pair. Must not have been saddle shoe day.
Feel free to ad lib in the comment section...I'd love to hear it. Really, I would. :o
