for senior photos, did the photograher ever write the grad year on the bottom of your feet?

    The closest I've ever had anything written on my feet is when I was 3 months shy of my 16th birthday. I wrote "16" on the bottom of my shoes and went in to apply for a driver's license. All I had to do is swear I was over 16.

    So I didn't lie!:fangs:

    This too shall pass. The sooner the better I hope.

    At least use a water soluble marker that is not 'permanent'. A permanent marker probably would wash off your feet eventually (having gotten Sharpie on my hands and it comes off after enough hand washing) but may not come off shoes (or maybe it would wear off the bottom of shoes...).

    I wouldn't want to be around when your parents find out what you wrote on with a Sharpie.

    OK, I'm officially feeling not old, but ancient. When I graduated we all had to wear white shirts and ties and the girls wore black sweaters and pearls (provided by the photographer if the young lady forgot hers).

    I graduated from high school in 1965. At the time, only seniors' pictures were put in the yearbook, and a photography studio had the contract, so everyone who had a portrait sitting was in the class of '65. As I remember, he made several proofs (on a reddish proof paper). The photographer delivered the appropriate prints to the yearbook staff, who put them in a page layout, and sent that off to the printing company. The studio used a 4x5 portrait camera (don't remember the make or model).

    My mom and dad selected a "package" of wallet, 5x7, 8x10, etc. photos touched up (lots of zits edited out).
