Pit Stop - Behind The Awkwardness

“Family vacation around 1974. We drove all the way to California with my father taking dozens of rolls of film. By the time we did a swing by the Grand Canyon, we were all tired. We got out of the car and this is the sole photo my father snapped of us. We spent about 3 minutes there. Long enough for my mom to finish that banana.”

    Ha ha! What a great story and a fun photo to remember that moment! The banana will live forever in your memories.

    Excellent! I’ll bet Mom LOVED that shot. During that same era, my dad was famous for taking hundreds of pix of scenery and other inanimate objects (flowers, buildings,etc.) — which, later, he couldn’t remember what they were– and only a few pix of any of us. In retrospect, maybe that’s a good thing. Fewer items to show up here!
