Wanted Alive - Kids

Wanted Alive

“Our uncle was sick, and this is the get-well card my eight-year-old daughter thoughtfully created for him as he went to the hospital. Inspired by a children’s book of cowboy craft ideas, she made this ‘Wanted’ poster more ‘authentic’ by crinkling it and ripping off the edges. We kept this one, and she created another one that was a little more toned down.”

Movie Night - Dad

Movie Night

“The kids were having one of our regular movie nights. The movie was in 3D. I don’t remember what it was but Dad clearly wasn’t interested. I love that he’s still wearing the 3D glasses while he’s reading, though.”

Break Dance Frank And Friends

“This is a picture of my breakdancing club. It’s origins are from Bellerose Queens, NY.  It’s the late 1980s when breakdancing was a thing.  If this doesn’t qualify as awkward IDK what does.”

Cemetery Chic - Dad

Cemetery Chic

“This was taken in New Orleans circa 1986. I am pretty sure it was 105°F that day. My mother told my Dad and I to pose in front of the mausoleums. Is there any doubt that we were tourists? Is there any further doubt that we made that cemetery look good? This picture is a reminder why Jam shorts and midriffs went out of style. Happy Father’s Day!”

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. :(”
