I decided my entry for this edition of Smile For The Camera would be of me.
Lake, Kathy. Photograph. 1972. Digital Image. Privatley held by Kathryn Lake Hogan UE, [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE,] Windsor, Ontario. 2008.
This is my kindergarten portrait, and it is my favourite out of all the school photos I have had taken. I was very shy and bashful as a little girl. I think the photographer may have tried to tickle me in order to get me to smile. It worked; but it also made me hunch up my shoulders.
When I look at this photo, I remember many things about kindergarten such as: how I used to walk to school by myself, the day I missed counting the number 16 when I was tested by my teacher, Mrs. Wallen, wearing my pink & white poncho on chilly days, and all the friends I made that first year of school.
