Boy With Bucket

Picture taken and hand-coloured by me, circa 1956-57.

A bucket full of innocence of childhood,
unaware of the next moment,
let alone millions of moments,
that lurk beyond.

And very amusing to me because I had an exact replica of me holding a bucket and grinning with not a stitch on me except a baby chuddy and a small chain on my frail 18 month body. Some fetish that generation of parents may have had with their children holding buckets because I know two others who have been photographed in the late 50 s early 60 s :) But the photograph is extremely endearing.
