YOU THEN YOU NOW
« on: 15 Aug 2008, 14:40 »

So it's probably been done before, but it's always fun to do! Take a picture from a while ago (doesn't really matter how long I guess, a couple years) and take a picture from you now and viola! Comparison between you then and now

I really hated old me I was very angst and wounds do not heal blah blah blah.
 
Anyhow. 14 to 17

This is me when I was I don't-know-how-old, probably 14 or 15 maybe.



And this is me being 17 on holiday this July.

Most recent picture of me


I tried finding an even older picture of me from whenever I was like 12 and made a Skateboard Team web site, but I guess Google stopped indexing it or angelfire finally deleted it.

Man, I am so ready for this. Last time we had this thread I missed it by a couple days, but now I have a photo album. Pictures are a little big, but I don't care.

Here is me as a little baby!


And as a cute little toddler at my 3rd birthday (this is one of my favorite pictures of myself).


Moving forward a bit, age 9 at a local park.


Aaaand my most awkward stage. This picture is laughable.


Just a few years ago, still in high school.


And me now! Still awkward, but this time with better hair and clothing!

Here I am again, I think about 15.


Last day of highschool, I would have been 18 here


Beginning of 2006, I think I would have been 19 here.


20 years old


Significantly more recent

When I was maybe 2 or 3? So either '92 or '93.


Who knows. I think I was 7 or 8.


2002. My rebellious phase was over quickly, thank God, and mostly amounted to me listening to punk rock and dying my hair red.


2005. Purple hair and a guitar necklace is as hardcore as I get, really.


And this was taken a few weeks ago.

It's a great shirt.  I am the husband of a (retired) librarian and the father of a (non-retired) librarian, so it fits well.  I also bought one for my son-in-law, who is married to the (non-retired) librarian, and he likes it, too.

Plus it was a lot of fun to wear when I was doing FOSS library system installations.

At 15, looking all uncomfortable because the photographer made me do weird things that wasn't very comfortable or "me":


On May 17th this year, at 21:


Basically I peaked at around 15-16, before I gained weight. And the weight (and length of hair) is pretty much the only thing that has changed since I was about 13, which is sort of sad :p

Dominic, you probably get this a lot but in the last photo you look uncannily like John Lennon when he had short hair post-Beatles.

I have actually never heard that since i cut my hair. When i was 16, though, with long brown hair and round glasses, well, a certain group of people outright refused to refer to me in any way other than "John". I think that is because the stereotypical image most people have of John Lennon is either that of the early '60s or that of him with very long hair.

Unfortunatly I don't have a picture from that period.

At the end of sixth form - 18 years old? 1997, anyway. This is officially the worst photo of me, ever:



The wierd part is that I had a girlfriend then.

About five years ago, with ill-advised facial hair and bleaching:

I liked that look, although (and you can't tell from that photo) the facial hair was really terrible. My hair is headed back in that direction, though; maybe I'll bleach it again.
