Photos:Cuteness factor has decreased a polled 98%, but I'm pretty sure I'm still the same little girl under there.
I believe the first photo was taken by a family friend the summer of 1980. The second was taken on the black and white setting of my non-DSLR, by moi, yesterday. I took a million, and in all but this one I resembled either Gollum, Rosasharn from Grapes of Wrath, or inexplicably, Steve Buscemi. I used Picasa's infrared film and glow filters to get the same effect as the first photo.
Kind of humbling to see how the face changes and not be ashamed of everything that comes with age. And so wonderful to see how little features are passed down to the children. Far more often family and friends point out how much the kids look like Obi than they do me. But I asked AnneMarie, Naomi and Isaac who the picture of the child was, and they all thought it was themselves! So there.
