Maggie said...

Gorgeous! All of 'em. More reasons for you to chop off that hair...

eve's lungs said...

You havent changed a bit baby . I love the sulky sue pic circa 1985/86.

starry-eyed said...

love how you look happier with age! Or maybe kids weren't encouraged to smile in the photo studios in the 80's!!!

Munchkin said...

hello there pretty woman :)

Grumpy in 85/86, wide eyed innocence in 91, naughty-cute in 92 (LOVE that one BTW), all “growed up” in August 2005 and HOT HOT HOTTTT in the second 2005.

I love all the pics here. Hard to decide which one is my favorite.

Mona said...

beautiful!
the bhablet looks eggjactly like you, does he not?

IBH said...

lovely Sue :) Chennai 2005 is my fav!

mayG said...

awww Sue :D love love love the pics!!

Poppins said...

Lovely lovely pics, just love the Hyd one the best. Dunno why! (And 2005 too)

Ok hottie, now cheer up!

Sue said...

Saptarshi -- Yes, I found a winning formula early on and stuck to it. :P

Itchy -- Me too!

Beyond -- At my grumpy best.

Maggie -- I meant to include a pic of me with my hair really short. Would have evened out the series. Ended up using only passport pics.

Evie --Whatcha sayin', I don't look that grumpy now. Not if I'm fed ghugni, at least.

Starry-eyed -- Well, this kid was woken up from her nap and dragged off to the studio and didn't feel like smiling. Besides, she didn't like the sweater she was wearing.

Sue said...

Avanti -- Hello yourself, hottie.

Cee -- LOL! I go for the last one. Taken because Vicky asked for traditional 'girl's side' pics as dowry. He refused to share the prints (except with my Ma who gave him no choice) or show them to anybody, can you believe the man...

Mon -- He looks a lot like me and he looks a lot like the Vicky and he's not a Libran for nothing, LOL!

IBH -- The pink top? Passport pic for Singapore visa. Fun memories.

Poppins -- You and Cee Kay both. I guess you like them because I look like such a moptop imp. Those were the days when Ma would have been justified in strangling me. I'm all cheered up, doncha worry.

BTW why does it take a pic post to make you lot delurk, huh?

Mama - Mia said...

:)

vevy vevy nice!

Sue said...

Abha -- Thunkooji!

D said...

2005 seems to be the defining year as far as your look goes. I like!

choxbox said...

nice!

Suki said...

OMG the first pic almost looks like the Bhablet. Gaal-pholaa and all. I guess it's the eyes, chubby cheeks and oval face.

1991 onwards looks like you though!

revsjoiedevivre said...

Awww you pretty pretty girl. I love your eyes and that smile :)

GettingThereNow said...

Awwww at Vicky not sharing the pics with anyone. I somehow find that very romantic :)

Sue said...

D, Chox, Revs -- Thank you.

Suki -- I don't know if you've noticed, but the boy and I do share a couple of genes. Give or take a few. :)

Cee -- Yeah, it was cute. He still has them hidden, the prints I mean. :)

Just Like That said...

Dunno if the color red has anything to do with it- but I liked the Hyd and the last pics best. you look WOW in the last one-very Indian and graceful. Your passport pics are this nice? all my id pics are horrid, I think. Voters id takes the pick.

Parul said...

I don't know how to 'Enregistrer un commentaire' and awfully sorry about that but you do look pretty here! Cut off the hair.

Subhashree said...

Lovely pics Sue. I love the 'Madras, Aug 2005' pic. But mostly you've looked the same throughout. Yes, like someone in the comments mentioned Bhablet looks more like you.

d_grail said...

Naice, love the chennai pics and the hyd pic!!


PS:Why is blogger talking to me in French/Italian/Some foreign tongue..

karmickids said...

You pretty little thing you...

dipali said...

From the 1991 pic you look like you! Lovely set of pictures:)

Sue said...

JLT -- LOL! Must be why Vicky likes red one me. Except for the last, the rest are passport pics. I had some horrid ones taken in school but otherwise you're right, I do have nice passport pics.

Parul -- :( I shan't.

Subha -- Of course he looks like me. His features are like Vicky but the look he has on his face is all me. :)

Grail -- Yo. Talk of delurks. Blogger talks in tongues to people who lurk. :P

Kiran -- :)

Dipali -- What the grumpy me doesn't look like me? Heh, it's a truer picture than the nice ones!

Collection Of Stars said...

You just seem to be getting prettier and prettier. Lovely lovely pics :)

Rohini said...

What???! These are passport pics? No fair. Didn't anyone tell you you're not allowed to look hot in passport pics? Mine look barely human...

As someone who looks like the Evil Dead in all my photos, passport and otherwise, I am supremely jealous. But also terribly envious of the perfect pleats on your saree in the last picture.

CoS -- Thank you! :)

Ro, Ana -- There are lots of other passport pics that will never see the light of day. Or of a server anywhere.

Ana -- LOL I wear sarees like that. What can I say, I'm funny like that.
