I don't remember much about the 1980s as I was just a little baby back then. Looking back at family photos though, it seems the 80s were the era of Michael Jackson and the Rod Stewart haircut. I have a family video and every single female member of my family had a Rod Stewart hair-do. Thankfully the kids were spared!
So I was born in the 80s (no Calvin pun intended). I have a few baby pictures of me but I suppose, apart from my birth, the most memorable event for my little baby self would be my Christening. I was the first Grandchild to both sets of Grandparents.
I chose this picture because it is one of the only photos I have of my Grandad and my Gran together. My Gran is wearing the lovely blue dress. I seem to remember she didn't really like having her photo taken...maybe I'm remembering wrong but it seems fitting that she is the only one not looking at the camera and instead at my Mum and I. My Grandad is the man standing behind my Mum.
I like how the photographer has chosen to position everyone. My Dad's Mum is on my Mum's side whilst my Dad's Dad is beside my Gran. It really shows the family coming together to celebrate a new baby.
This post is for The Gallery. The theme this week is the 80s.
