Spirit Of ’76

“Me and my two sisters at an Olan Mills studio in Stone Mountain, Georgia in 1976. My mom was trying to get a surprise photo for a Christmas gift for my dad. I think there was a better option, but this was the one they went with. Obviously, we all chose outfits to match our personal style.”

Graduation Day

“I just received my Master’s Degree and had pictures taken. I tried to get a picture with my kids, and this what we ended up with. Never has a photo captured each of their personalities so perfectly!”

Thug Life

“My nephew’s car was involved in an accident and the windshield was smashed out. Instead of having the car towed, my dad (the grandpa) insisted they drive the car home with no windshield. So, they put on their safety glasses and drove all the way home with the wind in their faces. The funniest part of the picture is the police officer following them who never noticed.”
