Sunday Post: Black and White

baby, 1972

Jake’s challenge this week is Black and White! Great chance to hunt through the old photos and find just the right one, thank you Jake. Backstory to this photo: my parents had a little business selling lambskins as baby bedding which involved sourcing them at tanneries here and importing sheepskins from New Zealand.  Of course they needed a model for their images, and their first grandson was just the right age! Our children loved their sheepskins; when we were out visiting at night we just put a sheepskin on the floor in a corner and the baby would go to sleep happily.In this photo the basket is part of a 1947 Truby King cane bassinet, the rattle is wooden, the nappy (diaper) is cotton … all natural materials for that sweet natural boy.

  2. My goodness, what a wholesome chubby chap he is kicking his heels up on his sheepskin! A classic image, Christine, and perfect for the black and white challenge with its overtones of a classical, bygone age.

    Speaking of images, I’d love it if you’d take up the 7 Super Shots challenge when you get back – here’s the link so you can take a note of the prompts to keep in mind while you’re away!
