8 December 2002, Crewe, Cheshire, UK
This photo strip was taken at Crewe train station at 8.35 pm. I was on my way home from celebrating an early Christmas with my sister and her family in Dublin. I was travelling with my husband, (now ex), my cousin Krissie and her son Ryan. According to my notes on the back of this strip, Ryan was four months and seven days old.
Krissie and her partner Tony, were living in the UK at the same time I was. Her sister Rachel was also living there. It was a fantastic two years of hanging out with them at every opportunity, and the longest time I have ever lived in the same country as my cousins.
Many of the photos in this long series are unremarkable. They make up a photographic album of my adult life, which gives me a lot of pleasure as I add each new photo to the collection. I also love the memories they bring back, when I write about them for this blog.
This strip of photos comes from my series Photobooth 45 Year Project. The complete set of posts to date, can be seen in reverse order at the link Photobooth 45 Year Project (Archive) under the Categories heading in the side bar, on the right of this post. I am still adding to this project using mostly digital booths to create the images and have many year’s worth of photos to post before I get up to date.
