Behind The Awkwardness

Pit Stop

“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.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Santa’s Little Helpers

“This is a picture of my family taken in 1981. If you could sum up my family with a picture, this would be it. That’s me crying in my mom’s lap. My brother looks like he’s having a nervous breakdown at the tender age of . My dad isn’t taking anything seriously and my mom looks very tired from having to put up with all of us. And the creepy Santa, well, that’s just a bonus.”

Behind The Awkwardness: The Longest Yawn

“My high school sweetheart and I were set to get married in June of 1995.  I called that wedding off, then we got re-engaged and planned the wedding for June of 1996.  Two weeks before that wedding I told my mom and my fiance I didn’t want to get married, but this time they would not allow it.  I went through with it, but I was not happy about it.  We had two beautiful children, but the marriage did not last.  We were divorced 8 years later.”

“I was trying to take a nice sweet picture of my 2 daughters (18 year age difference). And the expressions on their faces could just as easily have been seen today.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Victoria’s Secret

“This is my Mom in Dec of 1959. My brother had been born in August and my Dad was overseas in the Army. She took this photo and sent it to him. When questioned, she insisted these bras were ‘in style.’ I’ve never seen another photo of anyone ever wearing one. We’ve enjoyed this photo for years, it’s time to let others enjoy it as well.”
