Year 1: A posterior shot for posterity
Here's the very first photo of me. I was brought to the studio to have my naked butt taken because it's my parent's first (and only) baby boy.
I know what you are thinking but no, there were no other more revealing shots of me.
Year 4: My first documented birthday!
Here I am, smartly dressed and all ready for that big birthday party. I liked that clip-on tie very much. There were boiled eggs and a big birthday cake, Best of all, 4 bottles of soft drinks were just within grab on my right.
Year 4: Among the potted plants
After a couple of (soft) drinks from my fourth birthday party, it's time to hang loose. Here I am at the garden sans tie.
Year 6: My graduation from kindergarten.
Here's my first scholastic achievement after playing my way through kindergarten. I remembered standing in line for this shot, the teacher putting on my gown and cap, and with a last minute parting of my hair, the camera clicked, the bulb flashes, and I am taken off the set. Rats! I didn't even have time to smile.
Year 10: One fine day at the beach
You can call me chubby but you see, my mom over fed me. And she still does. I have no idea whose hand that is.
Year 12: My Hawaii Five-O phase
Let me just state categorically that I have no say in either my choice of clothes or hairstyles. My mom handles the former and my dad the latter. And what a lethal combination it was during the disco heyday.
Year 23: Thro' the lens
This is a self-portrait taken just after I started out on photography. I guess the most easily accessible subject then was myself standing in front of a mirror
Year 30: At the waterfalls
My friend took this picture of me at the Berkelah waterfalls in Malaysia. I think I have matured a bit since Year 10
