Being born before the digital revolution meant that every day of my childhood wasn't documented. We didn't own a video camera, and I think all of the photos that I have from birth to 18 can fit into 3 or 4 albums. Hence, the history that was recorded and snapped has become seemingly more valuable for its rarity.
We were at the Stampede parade, which had been and continued to be a yearly tradition for our family after this was shot. We always went down really early to claim our spot next to City Hall (and the Chat production booth coincidentally). It was 1987, I was 3 years old, and with my first few seconds in the spotlight I said a whole three words. "Luke. Cars. Because."
I still get a lot of mileage out of those words to this day.
