When Bears Don’t Attack

“This is me at our annual family vacation- it was the NC mountains. Note the bear less than 20 feet behind me. It just raises all kinds of questions. And explains a lot.”

The Choker

“The whole family seems to be so content as I choke off to the side… this is the epitome of my life. No big deal. I am alive and well now – no thanks to any of my relatives :)”

Whiter Shade Of Pale

“When my father got remarried after my parent’s divorce, my mother went through the family albums and cut him out of all of the family photos. Using scissors became too labor intensive, so she switched to white-out.”

Swan Lake

“This is a picture of me and my husband on our wedding day (obviously). We were posing for the photographer and this swan goes after my bouquet! The timing was just right and the photog captured the swan right as it went for it.”

Shiner

“This is a family photo taken after I ran into a wall…. unfortunately the portrait appointment was already scheduled. The show must go on!”

Seacup

“My in-laws live on a farm in central Virginia. One particular afternoon I wanted to get some photos of my father-in-law. Naturally he was outside tending to his horses. This horse needed some shots and we all know horses don’t comply when they see the ‘needle.'”
