Flash back: High School Senior Picture

I noticed on Dawn's blog that some folks were posting their high school senior pictures on their blogs today. I don't have the colored picture at my house, so I just shot a picture as I appeared in my year book.

So here I am, in the La Jolla High School class of 1972!
The drape was a powder blue that made me looks wan. No make up, just a touch of lip gloss.

In a moment of bravery, I decided to not only post my high school senior picture BUT.....are you ready for this: TODAYS picture of me, sans make up, a touch of lip gloss, 35 years later.

Now I dare everyone out there to do the same!

I only changed the "now" snapshot in Picasa by making it black and white, added film grain, glow, then lightened and shadowed to match the high school picture.
If you accept the challenge, please feel free to do the same!

(Yes, if I had Photoshop I would have been tempted to erase the under eye wrinkles, but then again, I earned those wrinkles! They are staying!)
Oh, and I weighed about 40 lbs less in high school than I do now. I've always had a full German face!

Jill!!! You look fantastic and I think would would win the "Changed the least" award at a reunion!

You look great!
How clever to post similar pictures.

Very sweet...and pretty!

You haven't changed a bit, Jill.
Thanks for playing along.....

Jill you look amazing. Wow, I love that you did that and perhaps I'll take up the challenge myself one of these days.
I love it that your hair is nearly identical. You were so so clever to pick a timeless look for that photo.

Impressive woman, yesterday and today! It is always such a lift for the spirit to come here and read your blog articles. Really enjoy the visits. Hugs, Jane

First off, you look great! I still am not used to your new haircut, but it definately suits you! Uncanny how you have returned to almost the same style as years ago. Obviously it was good then, and still good now. So much for those fashion experts who say you must change your style constantly to "keep up with the times" :)!
