1960's Phil at the Park

I'm struggling for content , so here is a shot from my archive.

This is me at Egerton Park in Bolton some time in the 1960's .

See the scab on my right knee, I fell off my bike , my knee was a right mess, it should have been stitched , my Mum just put a plaster on it !!!

I now have a scar on the knee !!!

Shot with my Dad's Leica and judging by the age of me I'd say with the Elmar 5cm f3.5 Leitz (Leica) lens , that I still use today (adapted to my Sony cameras)

What a cutie pie!

Lovely capture. I always think these 'battle scars' hold precious memories!
And the Clarks sandals....didn't we all have them.

@phil_howcroft we are never happy with what we have! I have straight hair, I always wanted curls! 😂

the curls are amazing and the accident sounds grim but you have a story to tell and a scar to show the grand children.
