First Day - Recreations

“The picture on the left was taken my first day of kindergarten in Clyde, Ohio.  To make a unique invitation to my 40th Birthday Party, I tried to recreate this picture.  It was remarkably easy to find a house that looked almost exactly the same even though I now live thousands of miles away.  The only thing missing was getting my little brother to pose inside the door . . . but the homeowner wouldn’t answer the doorbell and so we shot this one quickly without permission.”

    My dad was born and raised in Clyde, Ohio. My Uncle still lives on Mulberry St. and my cousin is nearby. Spent many summers there.

    This is one of those times where the story is more awkward than the photo–or, you could say, enhances the picture so perfectly as to elevate it to a more awkward level.

    I wasn’t so impressed with the recreation… until I read the caption. Too funny! Nice attempt, and the clothes are spot-on!
