The Crew

“My mom and her two sisters, circa 1990. Unclear why this picture was taken or why no one thought they could smile.”

Relief Appearance

“My aunt and my grandpa on a road trip in the mid 90s, grandma took the picture and wasn’t so aware of her surroundings.”

Eagle Eyes

“I nicknamed this photo “The Stare” because of my aunt’s look of “a deer caught in the headlights.” It’s obvious that she is not reacting to the photographer, as her two sons (my cousins) are both smiling pleasantly at the photographer. Regardless, you certainly wouldn’t want to challenge my aunt to a staring contest.”

Triple Threat

“Apparently, in the 80s, this was the best way to sell clothing. Here’s my cousin sitting on her future husband in an ad for a clothing boutique.”

The Stand-In

“This is my Dad’s family in 1991 and the photo was hanging in my grandma’s house for years with the caption written underneath. Oh the things you did before Photoshop.”
