The Gallery theme this week is "A Family Story". This photo is actually less of a story but more about the fond memories that the picture invokes. The photo was taken in my Nana's garden. I must've been 2 years old. I'm sat on my Uncle Tim's knee. My Dad is sat at the front on the grass (looking all young and handsome).
Now although I don't remember this moment it brings back a hundred memories in an instant!...
My Grandad used to grow onions and lay them on the path to dry once they'd grown. I used to sit and peel the skins off them! Not helpful but it must've been fun.
My Dad and Tim were and still are fans of gadgets! I'd bet a fiver that this photo wasn't taken by my mum or an Aunty!... Most likely on a tripod using self-timer.
The old man next door was a lovely chap. One of those who passed us the frisbee back EVERY time it went over his hedge, without moaning.
I could go on but I won't. I love this photo. It's one of very few I have of me and my Dad when I was young.
Our memories are what we base the family stories on that we pass on to our own children so I suppose this is about a family story after all.
