Bassoonish - School Photos

“This is one of my senior pictures. I was a… band enthusiast… and proved it by bringing my bassoon to the studio with me as a prop. Why I chose to leave the bocal and reed out of the picture, I have no idea, but I’m not even holding the instrument like it’s supposed to be held to play it. Everything about this is awkward and the most embarrassing documentation of my high school band career.”

Hammertime 2 - Dad

“This is a picture of my sister and dad, circa 1976. Our dad was very proud of the fact that he was building his first home while raising his first child. Unfortunately, this picture doesn’t capture the moment as well as it should.”

Shore Thing - Siblings

“It was the day of my senior pictures and the photographer decided we should get a sibling picture (he’s 3 years younger than me). My mom hadn’t made him wear anything special and he was just in an athletic T-shirt and shorts. So the photographer had the brilliant idea that we could just do it with a beach background and he could just take his athletic shirt off. This is how she posed us… apparently, we needed to be “real close” siblings. We got the pictures back and she had made us look like star-crossed lovers gazing into the sunset with awkward hand placement! Needless to say it never got framed or handed out with my senior pictures!”

The Box Factory - Halloween

“My mom worked for a box factory, this was my childhood. The ideas were all mine. My mom just pulled some strings at the factory to get me the boxes made and then my dad painted the outsides.”
