Mom and Dad



Been working on some flatbed scans of some old family photos.

The first photo up there is my Mom holding me, I was about a month and a half old. I was born in October of 1962 and the development date of the film was December of 62. I really liked the focused and unfocused areas in this one. It looks like it was taken with a tilt/shift lens. In reality it was my Mom's Kodak camera.

That's my Big Sis and Big Brother behind us.

I had scanned the second photo sometime last year; it's a 35mm slide scan. This is also me as a little feller being held by my Dad. I love the little Douglas Fairbanks Jr. mustache he has there. And check out all the wood paneling in that house.

Anyway, I worked on the one with my Mom last night, and I thought I would add the one of my Dad as well.

I think every family has those same type of baby photos. You're such a cute baby John.
