Magnolia

“I’ve been scanning old Kodachrome slides and I thought this was just a nice photograph of my mother among the magnolias… then I saw my someone peering over her shoulder. So creepy.”

Upside Down

“We had taken our son to Sears for a photo session. We received the proofs and ordered prints, not realizing that his middle finger was proudly displayed in the photo.  It wasn’t until years later we noticed it.”

Little Miss Sunshine Revisited

“My mom loved to get professional photos taken of my siblings and me when we were kids.  I hated it. I learned fairly quickly that if I complained or was fussy they would just keep going and ask me to be still or quiet. However, if I behaved perfectly and just made awful facial expressions the photos would end. This little gem is a product of my silent temper tantrums.”

Oh, and btw, this is Meg now.

Falling Slowly

“My daughter and I had been holding hands and she was leaning away from me and our photographer caught the perfect moment!  So the rest of us are looking fabulous while my 2 year old is crashing into the pavement!”

Always On My Mind

“I came across this pictures of my mom’s family today. My Grandmother still thinks this picture is beautiful and doesn’t understand why people giggle about the awkwardness.”

Just the Facts

“This is a photo of my sister (the murderer), my brother (the reporter), and my Dad (the victim). The way I’ve heard the story told, as I was still a few years from being born, they lived next to a reporter for the local news channel and one day, my dad decided it would be funny to stage this picture…complete with “blood stains” on his back. The back of the picture actually says, “Just the Facts, Ma’am, 8/01/75.”
