Eastern Exposure

“This picture was taken on my first day of high school, in 1997. The photographer thought there was something wrong with the camera, so he leaned in to take a look. He ended up taking a picture mid-inspection. This is the phot that was put in my yearbook and is a great reminder of how awkward high school can be.”

The BFV

“My son really loves vacuums. Reeeeeeeally loves them. On preschool picture day, he was so miserable, and was offered the preschool’s vacuum cleaner to play with to cheer him up before his photo. When I picked him up, I was told that I “might see a bit of the vacuum in the photo.”
