This week is all about the men! Turns out I have a lot of adult men in my life but no pictures of them and not too many boys in my life but lots and lots of pictures of them. Ironic, I think yes.
Since I don't have too many adult pictures, I'm using one that I just die laughing at everytime I look at it. This picture holds a place of honor in our living room. I took it the very first time I went to visit J's hometown island--Martha's Vineyard. He invited a lot of us to his house for Fall Break and we stayed at a Christian camp that wasn't being used (summer was over!). Us girls had a bunk house and the boys...well, they had a bunk house but I'm not sure if they used it.
One night we decided to head to the Singing Sands beach and the boys were being crazy. I snapped a picture (obviously using flash!) with my ghetto NON DIGITAL camera--this was old-school 2001, people! Like, when you have to wait to pick up your film roll and you eagerly open the contents to see if you got at least 2 decent pics out of the 27 on the roll. Needless to say, I think we got one:
Ugh. I took TONS of pictures of boys over the past several weekends. Okay, that last sentence sounded...uhh...a little stalkeresque. Really, I just tried to get some candids at parties and festivals that we frequented. After spending time editing several of my favorite shots, I showed them to J. Now, mind you, I usually show my options to J for his final approval and advice. He is the son of a professional photographer, afterall! Despite his opinions, I usually forego his choices in favor of mine.
Today, however, in honor of Father's Day, I'm honoring my husband, the Father of Baby C, by using his #1 choice. This was taken at a festival in Decatur--there is this huge statue in the square and there were lots of little boys climbing all over it.
