After a really wet weekend the sun is shining again........ but I'm back at work

A bit of colour before reverting back to black and white.

Many thanks for your lovely comments yesterday... of possibly the first picture ever taken of me.
I have loads of old family photos to scan and save to digital.
 I hope future generations of the family will appreciate seeing their ancestors.
I have the old family Bible from my dad's side of the family which dates back to the 1870's. 
My sister in law has also been doing a bit of research.

 I can't resist showing another one of me... taking my first steps.


This was written on the back of the photograph... it's mum's writing.
We were on holiday and she tells me as long as I had my sticks to hang onto I could walk.

Hmmm...with those sticks in hand, lucky you didn't become a drummer in a rock and roll band.

You just kept getting more and more adorable as you aged! Very cute how you had to have your sticks to keep you balanced!

:) lovely. I love the sticks being your prop too. Who'd have thought those little feet would've been off walking as far as they go these days ....

It's so great that you are getting to convert those pictures to digital. A few years ago I spent 6 months during nights and weekends scanning all of my parents old photos. It was great going through all those old pictures and slides.

Love the duck!

Beautiful bird! That's a really cute picture of you, and your mum's note made me laugh. It's pretty cool to have that old family Bible.

such a cute picture, but i would be worrying that you were going to poke yourself in the eye. I am gathering since your photography is so great , that you did not. How much fun it is to look back and remember these family things. I just looked yesterday in an old family bible that was my great grandmothers and is dated 1850. A very fragile old book. Pretty amazing to see though. Have fun with your photo processing.

Helene said...

What a great photo!

Gillian Olson said...

Susan said...

You were just the cutest little boy! I love them. Oh and the duck is awesome too!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Well it's agreed Andrew you were definitely a little cutie pie sticks and all! As for the mallard, it's beauty is only dimmed a little by your cuteness haha!

JM said...

This is great, Andrew! :-)

Indrani said...

Stunning!
Good you are digitizing all memories. :)

Denise said...

You were a very cute little boy. Loved the stick story. I also love how you've caught those gorgeous colors in the duck photo.

Arija said...

Love your baby pictures. It does show you that fear is only in the mind and so is safety, which can appear to be clutching at straws or sticks.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - great picture - this could be one of the first records of people using ski poles to help them walk!!

The coal tits in the next post are great too.

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Andrew, the way Oban gets packed in the summer months nowadays, you need sticks to push your way through the crowds. lol

That's funny about the sticks -- It really is all in your head isn't it!

Sorry bout the sunshine and going back to work....all those years when we worked 5 days a week (in Oregon) I think the sun shined every Monday even during rainy season!
