Falling Into My Own Trap

“I’ve set up a lock screen app on my phone that takes a photo if you type the wrong password. I was hoping to catch my daughter. So far I’ve only caught myself. Mostly first thing in the morning.”

The Fisherman’s Pride Recreation - Family Portrait

The Fisherman’s Pride Recreation

“While at a flea market several years ago, I bought a print called ‘The Fisherman’s Pride.’ It depicts a woman and her child by the seaside and the pair look exactly like me and my son–several people assumed we posed for it! So, I decided to recreate the image. I hired a photographer, had my hair professionally done in a ‘Seaside ‘do, (which really just means ‘wind blown’), and went into the studio for our shoot.

This is the result. Rather than actually going to the seaside and holding my son in my arms, or even using a seaside backdrop, I’m wrapped in a sheer cloth with my naked one-year-old on my lap. I hung a copy in my home for awhile since it was the only photo I had of me and my son at the time, but I quickly got rid of it when a neighbor asked why I was pretending to be a mermaid. :(”

The Fix Of ’76 - Christmas

The Fix Of ’76

“We had a professional photographer come to our house to take a family photo. When we got the photos back, all of them had something wrong– someone’s eyes were closed, weird smile, whatever–except for the last photo, which we thought was perfect and sent out on our Christmas cards. Then…we saw it. I (the youngest) evidently was having underwear creepage that needed to be fixed right then. At that very moment. And to this day, no one will ever let me forget The Great Underwear Fix of 1976.”
