Life is like a river

By Gunnlaug

One of my favourite photos

This is one of my favourite photos, taken on my confirmation-day in April 1985.  
I love the way we are laughing, my friend Linda Björk and I, probably because of some teenage awkwardness or because we simply had an attack of the giggles.
I love the way we are dressed in dark suit and tie (I had removed my jacket and bow-tie), since both girls and boys were slaves to this fashion and all looked exactly the same.
I love the way my bedroom walls are covered in Duran Duran-posters and memorabilia.
I love the way my room is decorated in brown and beige and stripes, as opposed to 10 years earlier (see extra photo) when colours and patterns were more bold. I wonder if this decor was nightmare-inducing?
And I love the fact this photo is from my aunt's Disc film-Kodak camera which produced grainy and low quality photos with brown and purple-tinted colours. Those were the days...
During February I've decided to use this list of ideas in the hope I get back my "photo-mojo" and start posting daily again.
