Today is my birthday. It is a "big" birthday, as they say. How big I cannot reveal, or, rather, I will not reveal.
In honor of this, I am feeling a bit sentimental and have decided to show off a baby picture of me shortly after my arrival.
My mother is holding me and you can probably guess what era I was born in, by the, shall we say, lack of color in the picture.
Personally I love the evocative nature of black and white photos. Makes the subject appear more atmospheric, if you will.
Fast forward a year to my first birthday cake--not that you can see much detail in this.
I can't say I remember the decoration either, so cannot describe it. Obviously the celebration was at night.
