Behind The Awkwardness: Double Vision

October 1st, 2014


“The year was 1976. My mom had just come home with that fabulous perm, and, apparently, I asked to have the same done to my hair.  I was three or four at the time, so I’ll have to take her word on that.  I do, however remember the traumatic experience of having that fro cut off several days after this picture was taken, because I played in a sandbox too emphatically and my mother couldn’t comb through the tangled, sandy mess!  This picture will always make me smile (while shaking my head).  It shows just how tiny our immediate family was – just me and my mom, with dad behind the camera at his studio. It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.”

“This is the owner of the company I work for. We are lucky enough to have a full kitchen in the office. One day I heard the garbage disposal going for what seemed like a long time. So I went in to check and this is what I found. I have no idea what she was trying to shove into the disposal, but whatever it was she needed a broom handle and her hand.”

Well, order has been restored to the universe. Schenectady High School senior Draven Rodriguez, who started a petition to get his unusual photo featured in the yearbook as his senior portrait, has his cake and is now eating it too. Recently, the school’s principal posed for a photo with Rodriquez in the ultimate display of solidarity. Perhaps our education system is in better shape than we thought.

The Wiz

September 30th, 2014

“I cannot recall what grade I was in, only that I never smiled again. My mother made me wear that horrible western-styled shirt, and I was furious. I think this was the first time I became consciously aware of fashion and self-respect. My Tasmanian friends, whose young children had never seen such a thing, asked, upon seeing this photo, ‘Is he a wizard?’”
