The Random Crunch…

…apologies for the blogging lapse today… have fallen into my seasonal bit of illness/sluggishness…


This has been making me chuckle… another scanned crunchy old photo from the Lau archives and in the words of my sister Louisa, pictured in the blue sweater at the front…

"Baseball cap, check. oversize sunnies, check. mickey mouse crew neck, check. Born scene, Always scene."

Honestly, her words, not mine…

  1. I love the colours in the foreground juxtaposing against the grey in the background. The castle is amazing,where was this?

  2. Aww, you don’t ever have to apologize for lapses in blogging! You’re the champion of regular blogging . . . I don’t know how you do it!
    I love the ’80s Lau family photos you post here . . . and I love that you have an Of Montreal song on your playlist! 🙂

  3. Brilliant photo made my day better than Rankin’s reinactment of old photgraphs as this is the genuine article – tres cool. You should have pretended it was your family holiday home! ‘Here we arriving at our summer house.’

  4. Cute picture 🙂 My little brother and I had matching Minnie & Mickey crew necks in the 80s…
    Do you recall which castle/chateaux it was?
    My dad’s been scanning old slides lately, and I have a scan of Chenonceau in similar faded colours.

  5. Yup, it is indeed Chambord…. hehe…. the car was pretty epic…. and I’m holding an R2D2 flask…my sis had one in pink and I had the yellow one….
    Sorry for lazy posting… will get back on track soon…

  6. It’s probably the castle-looking thing in the background but this almost looks like something out of a photo shoot with little kids. I love the glasses and hat too, she looks like a hipster little kid. 🙂

  7. Love this- looks so retro. Seeing photos of your family from old times makes you feel good doesn’t it?? must dig out some of my own ! check on all the fashions though – just need the disney crew necks to be bought out by Christopher bailey and you’re good to go!
