The Downers

“1993. My siblings and me (the blonde) got the great idea to take a portrait of ourselves for a surprise Christmas present for our Mom. However, none of us were in the mood for photos on that particular day.”

Drop Shot

“One of my close friends snapped this photo of my two-year-old niece on a nice family stroll with my sister. At first he thought he’d just captured a nice candid photo until he looked closer.”

Stone Cold

“This is my grandmother posing proudly with her gallstones. She had them removed as a teenager and was told they were the biggest the doctors had ever seen. I shared her pride in this, so lucky for me I was willed the actual gallstones when she passed away.”

“At a family birthday party, I thought I would do the fatherly thing and play a little soccer with my daughter.  As I approached her to try to steal the ball, she sent a rocket in my direction. I was okay after writhing on the ground for a few minutes.  We switched to football for the rest of the afternoon.

“This is my Uncle Leonard and his family. Aunt LouJean was a great seamstress, and just HAD to make shirts and pants for the whole family every time we had a reunion. This was one of the CLASSIC examples.  My favorite is how Uncle Leonard’s shirt looks like a permanent bib has been sewn on it, and Aunt LouJean’s shirt is almost blazer-like with the pink lapels and the pink rolled up sleeves.”

“My mom thought it was a nice day to take a family picture with my grandparents. We set a timer for the camera but the doggo did not cooperate.”
