“My grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Switzerland. On a family trip back to their homeland, they posed for this photo in front of a glacier.

“My mom sewed clothes for the family as I was growing up. Since our family sang together in churches in Indiana and Michigan in the 70’s, she had the grand idea of making red polyester suits with a hint of orange Polka dots (along with the awesomely huge bow ties). Gotta love ya, Mom! And BTW, I’m the little boy next to dad. Today, my family of 7 children all play in our own family music group, but without the polyester.”

“Lombard Street, San Francisco, CA, 1997. While touring the Crooked Street on foot we were witnesses to this fender bender that caused a traffic jam and uproar of tourists waiting for their chance to drive down the street. Our folks felt this was a perfect moment for a happy family portrait.”
