Smile for the Camera, 7th Edition

Kiddie Pool - Mississippi Delta Style - circa 1953

This is my submission to the 7th Edition of Smile for the Camera, due out in early November 2008. The subject of the photograph, taken in the early 1950's shall remain unnamed for privacy's sake. As you can see, the picture is one of a small child, in what I call the original "kiddie pool." It is actually an old washtub of years gone by. The washtub, a small amount of water, and a sunny summer day created the setting for a splashing good time for this little guy. And the look on his adorable young face says it all.

  1. Ah, those were the days! We used to have fun even without all the gaudy plastic stuff! And look, in the background there, isn't that one of those uncomfortable strollers? Fun pic, Janice!
