Throwback Thursday - My 8th birthday


I got my very first camera for my 8th birthday. It was one of those Kodak Instamatic cameras with the disposable flash bulbs that you bought separately and burned out one flash from it every time you used it. Back in the dark ages, LOL.

So, accordingly I have a whole lot of pictures of my 8th birthday party. Here are a few of them - gotta love those 70's fashions!

I'm the one with dark hair in the white blouse and blue skirt/jumper thing... And yes, we were at McDonalds for part of the party.







I think this was one of the first pictures I took with my new camera. Thank goodness I got a bit better at it over the years! Of course nowadays you can see the picture and delete it before you ever make a print of it anyway... :)

Why do all pictures from the 70s look so similar? All my childhood photos look eerily like the ones you posted. Fun TT!

My first camera was a Brownie! I upgraded to the one you had when I turned 12. Big kid then!

This is great! I remember those orange seats at McDonald's! My first camera was a Kodak Disc!

I had a Kodak Instamatic, too! It used those square flashbulbs that rotated. 1 flash per side. Seems so quaint now, doesn't it? It was high-tech back then!

Great photos!
