Kenny Rogers - Through The Years [muziic.com]

'Going Retro' is a very clever post idea Oscar [photoblog.com] had a few days ago; and so I've decided to subject myself to this pending laughter

Yep, this is yours truly many moons ago when I was still a playa… A baseball playa that is… Actually, my mom probably brought me to a retail department store to have this shot taken and they probably dressed me up like the little doll I am… I would suppose that my mom had this shirt made prior the shoot

I'd also like to point out the technical debacle this post put me through. The long and short of it is that the ‘actual’ photo is fused to a glass frame and there is no way without ruining the photo to separate it. So I had to shoot this in front of the glass with a white wall background, a very small aperture and long exposure to decrease the glare you still see. What a mission. Cheers.

I was just thinking it coudl have been a lot worse: your mom could have given you one of those naked baby butt pictures of you; you could have posted it and it could have been selected on the FP...

Let's be grateful for small mercies, shall we?

It's a really nice pic - hope you still feel as full of joy as you appeared in the photo.

I like the idea Mike, I think I will accompany you and Oscar especially as my actual avatar doesn´t have any influence on my weight

Heather 11 years, 6 months ago

Yes...shameless promoting :) I can't fault the flash back though. Part of me has a cringe reaction . Not because of the picture, but because I worked temporarily at a photo studio in the mall and it bring back bad memories for me. So did your look back in time help ya to learn anything about yourself?

Christa 11 years, 6 months ago

What a sunny boy, Mike, you smiled also with your eyes and I hope this happens still now!
I have the same problem with some old pictures and can't separate the glass without ruining the sames.

I congratulate you on this earnest attempt to subject yourself to worldwide ridicule - and to do such a good technical job in the process. As my mother says, being young and being dumb are crimes we all commit at least once in our lives...

Although I must confess, I don't see that much difference between the old and new profile pictures ;-)
