Read into it

My mother sent me this photo of my incredibly young father with his first-born. All the things I notice:
he is so thin!
the pipe looks so strange
he is holding Colin with surprising competence
the brussels sprouts in the background symbolise fecundity
the pole and resistors are harbingers of the communications era
the low stone houses and walls show timelessness and community
the way his hair is standing up demonstrates a stiff North wind
Colin looks like a rabbit
