Remember the old photo booths? There was something magical about being able to go in, close the curtain, and emerge a few minutes later with a strip of pictures to remind you just how silly you were!
I can't recall the last time I saw one of these booths. In the age of digital cameras and camera phones, I suppose they have become obsolete. What a shame.
These photos were taken in 1974, give or take a year. We were so tan that it must have been during our annual beach vacation. The faces I was making lead me to believe that I must have had a major sugar buzz going on. It was the only way I could stay awake long enough to watch Saturday Night Live.
I am the tall goofy looking kid. Both of my sisters have long since grown to tower over me. They are also really skinny. I love them despite all of that.
My middle sister is making the cutest faces! I'm not sure why she wouldn't show her teeth. Perhaps the front ones were missing. I'll ask her later. I do know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that she was wearing a dress. It's all she would wear back then. Now, not so much.
I'm also not sure why my baby sister has scrapes all over her face. Probably the result of a wave-riding fiasco earlier in the week. She, too, is making really cute faces. What the heck was my problem??
