School Daze

By dudler  
There are so many reasons I couldn't take this picture now...

It's from 1970, when I was still at school, as was my subject. I don't recall her name, but I reckon she was in the Fifth Form when I was in the Sixth.

Posing, or what? I don't think any professional model could pull a better 'I am so young and innocent' face.

I guess not, but you were about the same age and if you were that age you'd be snapping it with your phone. Young people taking pictures of each other is an everyday occurrence. No-one bats an eyelid in those cases. Double standards doesn't come close to describing society today.
But it's glad you did take such shots, it's all part of the social commentary of an age and a nation (if that doesn't sound cheesy, it's not meant to).
