Blue Christmas - Behind The Awkwardness

Blue Christmas

“This is my ex-boyfriend’s family. c.1964. He and his twin brother and sisters and Dad are “enjoying” Santa’s visit. They lived in Red Lodge, Montana in the day, so perhaps a more realistic St. Nick was hard to come by.”

Fishy - Behind The Awkwardness

Fishy

“This photo was unearthed recently from a photo album, that had remained unseen for the past 20 years. No one in the family has any recollection of when and where this photo was taken, including my mother, the person gutting the fish. In fact, up until recently seeing this photo, she would have told you she had never gutted a fish. She also asks: “Why am i wearing sunglasses? And that bandanna?” This would be an amazing photo in itself, without the absurd addition of the mystery hands (no one knows who’s hands these are!), giving the sink a good plunge. As you do, when the person next to you is feverishly gutting a fish!”
