Ballet Recital – #photographicmemorary

In #photographicmemory, Features, HOME, LIFE by Sam Prance

#photographicmemory is a feature in which someone sends in a photo of theirs and writes about it. It was created because sometimes you can find out more about a person by asking them to describe a photo than by asking them a ton of questions. It was also created because it’s nice to look at pretty photos.

My whole childhood was filled with barbies and pink glitter and dressing up and also dancing to every single video from the national ballet that existed. I am on the left, my older sister Maria is on the right. We are really close, and we look entirely ridiculous here, which is why I love this photo. I think this is from the particularly embarrassing occasion that we performed a dance to my entire family on Christmas day. I asked my parents why on earth they let me do that, and apparently it was cute. We do look quite cute in this picture though – my uncle is smiling at us in the back.
