Mom + Dad

I really wanted to take more photos when I went home.

(And by home I mean the place I left over 20 years ago.)

I wanted to take some formal and some posed photos.

But things kept happening.

Like, I had the awfulest time sleeping because Iris had the awfulest time sleeping.

So I didn’t get around to taking half the photos I dreamed up.

Actually, I didn’t get around to taking any photos I dreamed up.

Here’s an old photo of Mom & Dad that I really like a lot:

Okay, so I can critique it:

The composition should be vertical instead of horizontal and I don’t like the shadow on Dad’s face.

Maybe it’s just proof that any old photo of one’s folks together is better than no photo at all.

Who knows?

But I really like it.

I wanted Mom & Dad to pose together sorta the same,

tho without Cate,

as she now lives in Napa, CA and was unable to come home for the weekend.

Instead, I took some photos of Dad sitting on Mom’s lap.

Okay, so I can critique them:

I don’t like the frame surrounding Dad’s head or the background business.

I didn’t want to crop it tightly, because I like how Dad is sitting on Mom’s lap.

My camera lens it wide angle, so it accentuates the longness of Dad’s long legs.

But I really like the photos. A lot

Maybe it’s just proof that any old photo of one’s folks together is better than no photo at all.

Who knows?
