Peter Pan

I have a new baby.
Over there, on the left.

Fairly androgynous, although I've been referring to it as 'him'. Isn't he beautiful? He came to me from the car boot sale in Battersea. The nice old lady selling him asked me how much I was offering and then gave it to me for the little money I had left. She kept insisting it was a 'late 18th century' photograph...even though Nicephore Niepce didn't produce what is generally regarded as the first photograph till at least 1820. She was so nice and excitable that I didn't have the heart to correct her and give her a short history lesson on photography, though.

Plus, I was much too excited about my new baby to quibble.
