Loose Change

September 29th, 2010

“Like many who grew up in the 70s, my family’s annual vacation generally meant piling into the car and driving across country to somewhere cheap. My father was an incredible penny-pincher in those days, admirably captured in this photo. I believe we were on our way from Montreal to Moody Beach, Maine when we stopped off to get something to eat. My father dropped his change after the meal and he made us all scramble around the Lums Restaurant parking lot picking up the pennies.”

The Pioneers

October 5th, 2010

“Every year our family used to go on an organized “Rendezvous.” Always held in some remote part of Wyoming, or Montana, or Colorado, the main tenant of these rendezvouses was that you had to wear clothes, use cooking utensils, and even sleep in tents and linens available during the period – mid 19th century!! And we were there for a week at a time to boot! So needless to say by the time we took this photo during day 5 of a particularly hot rendezvous in Colorado one year, my sister and I had had just about enough. The result…a truly awkward family photo!”

The Disney Situation

September 29th, 2010

“Proof that every guy from Jersey looks like The Situation at one point in their lives. I’m the one with the scrunchie and the attitude. We drove from NJ to Florida and when we got there everyone just wanted to do their own thing but first they made us take a stupid picture. This is from the Park family Disney vacation, 1990.”
