“What’s that? The lost Dutch photo has been found?? I may be committing social suicide here (not to mention social homicide for my brother and sister), but I think this shot deserves a longer life than just a one-time photo spread in an art supply catalog.”

Branching Out

February 10th, 2011

“This was taken at the rodeo when my family from the UK came to visit. We all were dressed in our best “rodeo” attire & not until this photo did we realize how cheesy we looked. I dread to think what’s going through the mind of the guy in the background! I’m still not sure what possessed my Dad (at the back of the formation) to add the soft focus around the edges prior to sending it to us all!”
