A little olden days

This term at school the junior classes are looking at the "olden days" and the other week had an excursion to Yarrabee Yesterday World. They were to dress up in old-fashioned attire suitable for students, and were taught about the olden days in un-powered classrooms with slate and chalk to write with, and a taste of old style discipline ;)

Before we headed off to school in the morning, Sienna and Ash let me take a few photos, they looked so cute. All of Ash's clothes are his normal semi-formal clothes that he wears to our religious meetings, and Sienna's shirt was also just out of her wardrobe (but gorgeously old-fashioned!). I picked up Ash's hat and Sienna's skirt - originally a women's skirt that I took in to fit her - from local op-shops. Sienna's vintage coat is genuine and from the 40s or 50s or something like that and was given to us by a friend a few years ago.

I'm not sure which version of this photo I like better, the colour or black and white. What do you think?

i adore these pictures!!! hard to say about the black and white or color... of course the black and white gives it more of the authentic "old" look, but the rosy cheeks and lips on the color picture are cute as well.

so so cute. i prefer the colour versions, even though the the black and white ones look more nostalgic.
