Just Beginning - 9/7/12 challenge


Just Beginning  - 9/7/12 challenge

A collection of my baby pictures. None are dated on the back, although two are stamped by a photography retailer in El Centro, CA; we moved there from Los Angeles in late November of 1943, when I was four months old. It's entirely possible that Mother took pictures in Los Angeles, and developed them later; she may even have mailed them to her father who could have printed them in his home darkroom. So the date range I've included is pure guesswork.

When I thought I was finished, DH looked at the screen and said, "There's an awful lot of empty space." I like white space, but it did seem a bit much, so I fiddled around and added some ribbons and flowers - see next image. Opinions and recommendations are welcome.
