This photo was taken in Wasior, Dutch New Guinea, in 1952. My dad had just graduated from the Police Academy a year earlier and we lived in a house built out of wood and sago palm fronds. I guess it was more of a hut than a house. My mom and dad were 26 and were on the skinny side as he just got out of the Japanese Concentratio Camp a few years back. My dad was also involved with the riot police and I was 1 year old.

Lovely layout! Your elements are perfect for a "young" theme, and the small touches of color really make the page sparkle. Your journaling makes this an incredible snippet of family history that will be treasured in years to come.
