Awesome Parents

My Parents Were AwesomeTHIS is cute – a site called My Parents Were Awesome , where people post pictures of their parents when they were young.

The site says that “before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome”.

Well worth checking out, and it’s easy to submit your own parents’ image – so long as they were once awesome, of course. Thanks to @MichaelRpdx on twitter for pointing it out.

SOTM launch party

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

SOTM sketchbooksThe Someone Once Told Me launch party took place on Saturday 8 September 2007 in London. Thanks to all who came.

There was a prize draw, a bit of a speech by yours truly, pictures were taken by Marcus Yorke, and I grabbed a few SOTMs myself while it was all going on.

Two of the ladies who came had previously posed for SOTM on a beach, in Goa, India, about a year before – and we’d never seen each other since. What’s more, they came to the party from Germany! Now that’s the sort of dedication that SOTM likes to see.
