The Rascal

Since I'm often the person behind the camera, there are few pics of me out there. This happens to be one, from where I grew up in Halton, in southern Ontario. The house in the background belonged to the neighbour; our house was to the left of whoever photographed this. One of my nieces had a copy of it and photographed it and sent it to me.

I look thoroughly disreputable. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you.

  1. Possible disreputable but in a James Dean kind of way.

  12. I was going to say "The Fonz" but I see everyone else things so too!

  13. @Parsnip: It's been years since I saw Rebel With A Cause. I still wonder why people seem so fascinated with him.

    @Cloudia: it's weird seeing me with hair.

    @Marianne: very different!

    @Revrunner: He looks incorrigible.

    @VP: at least I was dressed well!

    @Deb: thanks!

    @Beth: My first leather jacket's looking quite worn now, so it's pretty much retired.

    @EG: that's what I get for shaving it off and liking it that way!

    @Linda: thanks!

    @Luis: thank you!

    @Jan: of course, back then I didn't have a beard!

    @Tex: so it looks!

    @Marleen: it was.

    @Birdman: definitely in another life!

    @Sharon: that seems to be the consensus.

  14. Very cool! The Fonz was the first thing that I thought too!

  15. Make that four for Fonz.

    You look better bald.

  16. Haha! You do look a bit too cool for school William :)

  17. You remind me a bit of myself. I've got a photo taken in about 1953 where I was standing next to my 1937 Chevy. I'm wearing Levis low, a leather jacket, motorcycle boots, and my hair is high and full with a ducktail. I was soooooo cool!

    Just like you!

  18. @Judy: that appears to be the common opinion.

    @Norma: I like the look, so I keep the look, even if on occasion I cut myself open whilst shaving.

    @Grace: at least I'm wearing clothes.

    @Jennifer: Yes, I did!

    @Lowell: your parents must have thought "what is he thinking?"

    @Ciel: I got into wearing black when I was a teen. Somehow I never got out of that- most of my wardrobe's black.

    @RedPat: fortunately, yes!

  19. There's hair on your head, Sir Wills.

  20. Black leather jacket. Levis. Yep. You've got "the look." I'm in the Fonzi camp.

  21. I thought it was a young Elvis!

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Shelly: yes, it's weird to see.

    @Spiderdama: thanks!

    @Kay: it's a good look.

    @Eve: thanks!

    @Cheryl: just as long as you didn't think Elvis towards the end.

  23. It's a great photo, lovely to see how you were when you were a young whippersnapper :)

  24. So... this was when? Last year?

  25. Ha, fun to see you!
    It's too bad leather jackets have that connotation. It is really the only thing that will keep you warm on a motorcycle in North American winter (as I remember from my college days).

  26. @Jack: thanks!

    @Denise: back in the proverbial day!

    @Linda: a few more years! I haven't lived in that part of Ontario in awhile.

    @Randy: thanks!

    @Dina: well, winter in this part of North America doesn't lend itself well to motorbikes.

  27. Thanks for sharing this photo of yourself, William. We all looked different years ago...could it be that we were younger?
