    The one on the left (my left) looks just like my mom! I should my uncle the photo and he thought it was her! Seriously…she looks exactly like my mom and the one on my right looks just like my Aunt Barbara! What year was this taken??

  2. Sophie says:

    Entitled “The Baptism of Sybil”

  5. Tiffani says:

    I quite like this picture actually, I think its kind of creepy, but also artistic. I’d put it on an album as the cover.

    Oh I know! They are “noodling” ! 😉

    Why were they canoing in the swamp anyways?

  9. magillicuddy says:

    reminds me of “The Shining” but the lake version…

  10. Barry says:

    OMG, I have a picture of my Mom and her sister with that same haircut. Definitely 1920’s.

  11. Nancy says:

    Awwwww. reminds me of Ma and my Auntie!

    The Tradition of taking Awkward Family Photos go way back …

    “OK girls, I have a great idea. You get in the water and sit in the boat and I’ll take a picture…OK now steady as she goes…….now hold hands…….this will look good……this looks great!” and 1 hour later! This classic awkward photo. Goes to show, forcing loved ones into awkward positions starting in the very beginning!!! LOL

    Hey Moe! Hey Moe!

    Auditions for the RING….

  16. Mary says:

    You know that last scene in “Friday the 13th” where Jason comes flying out of the lake to get the last surviving kid at camp? Yeah…Jason’s sisters.

  17. amy says:

    Rock the boat! Don’t rock the boat, baby! Rock the boat! Don’t tip the boat over!

  18. Thingfish says:

    I can’t tell what’s in their hands, but it looks like a foot.

  19. Lava Girl says:

    Awkward, Creepy and Totally Awesome Pic!!!! *two thumbs up* to whoever submitted this one….

  20. Snowrider says:

    At very first glance I thought it was one of those old country revival baptisms. And then suddenly. . . Oh, a canoe. It’s just your basic mom and daughter recovering a sunken canoe in a nasty flooded swamp…..no big deal.

  21. John III says:


  22. Don says:

    C’mon ladies….it’s synchronized “swimming”, not synchronized sinking.

  23. lynette says:

    i actually thought for a second it was a baptism in a lake!

  24. Steph says:

    Ummm…. I don’t get it. They look like ghosts because… the picture is old?

    The one on the right looks like Kristin Wiig from SNL…..

  25. peg says:

    I can’t tell if the girl on the right is holding a hand or a foot……@_@!!!

  26. Mimi221 says:

    It’s a baptism! Little does the younger one suspect she’s about to be brutally dragged underwater.

  27. Chris says:

    Looks like they found a crab. Either that or it’s bayou baptism.

  28. Tim S says:

    Haircuts by Bob
    Hole in Canoe by Pierce
    Murky water by Al G.

  29. We haven’t had this much fun since the hogs ate our little brother.

  30. Sus says:

    ha ha! It isn’t everyone that can go down with the canoe and keep smiling about it…. Makes me wonder just what really happened! lol

  31. Milly says:

    Judging by the grass in water, it’s a flood picture… but why on earth are they posing in a swamped canoe? …I love the bowl haircuts, BTW.

    Verdict…. very awkward.

  32. schoolnurse says:

    I’d scuttle those haircuts too.

  33. QueenBee says:

    This is classic! Love the ‘do’s!

  34. Alan says:

    “Canoe swim to the shore?”

  35. iti says:

    Notice how the treetops are cut off flat in the sky, but full in the reflection. The girls have their heads, but in the reflection cut off, interesting. Also, I sense an alligator nearby… in the realm for Art?

  36. Penny says:

    Wow, yup there is something quite creepy about this photo.

  37. Rae says:

    What tha?!?!?!

  38. Annie says:

    Canoe fail!

  39. Valarie says:

    This IS creepy! Are they holding their little brother under perhaps?

  40. JerseyPam says:

    They decided they would not tolerate little brother another second…(insert gothic music here)

  41. nomad says:

    Turns out the Titanic wasn’t Rose’s first rodeo. Little sisters do tend to get in the way…time to teach her to dive for the Heart of the Ocean.

  42. Laggin says:

    With matching haircuts.

  43. Faye says:

    I find this inexplicably creepy.

  44. Peter says:

    Sorry, but that’s just creepy -they look like ghosts!
