This is my Dad, David. As with my Mum’s photo, this was taken for an international drivers license in 1994. Neither of my parents are all that fond of getting their photos taken but Dad is definitely the most reluctant. He is a voracious reader and keen gardener, producing vegies and other comestibles year round.
Earlier this year I coaxed both Mum and Dad into a digital booth at Chadstone shopping centre. I wouldn’t say there was a lot of moaning, but their reluctance was verging on outright refusal, until a deal was struck to make sure the visit included coffee and cakes. It was a major victory for me to get them into a booth after a 17 year gap. I will be posting the results one day soon.
