Lady With an Ermine

old school portrait

“I don’t know if this image quite qualifies for the site, as it is a masterpiece that I managed to defile in photoshop, but it IS awkward. And my dog counts as family… It came about when I looked at my dachshund-mix, Wesser, and thought- with love- “sometimes that boy looks like a weasel”. With that, DaVinci’s “Lady with an Ermine” immediately popped into my head and a scheme was born. The best part is, family and friends not only applauded my mangling of the masterwork, but are now requesting their own! Which, I think, speaks volumes to the familial awkwardness from which this sprang.”

Into The Woods

funny band kid

“In the truest sense of the term, this is an awkward family photo. Circa 1984. Failing to capture the spirit of my role in the North Stafford High School marching band, dad thought it made sense to stage a photo of me in my uniform … in the woods … in a chair that just happened to be there … and without my sax. Instead, it looks like I am the young regent of Sherwood Forest, perhaps its constable, given the bobby hat.”

“One day my sister and I were taking a walk when she suddenly said ‘Hey, lets go take pictures with the trees.’”
