IF: Remember


IF's theme this week is remember. I love the camaraderie of this photograph. These guys, in their suits, taking a picture to remember the first day of their new business, or on a fun vacation. Perhaps they are all related, brothers-in-law, and the wives are huddled together behind the camera. . . . Who knows, but this is an occasion they want to remember!

I titled the piece "These Guys" because I can almost hear the Robert De Niro-esque quality exclamation emerging from the guy in the center as he puts his arms around the other two and squeezes then in close just as the shutter snapped the scene. You know you hear it too!

What a wonderful piece! Love the three guys all together! What's great about works like these are they always leave you imagining the situation/time in which this picture was taken to capture.
How wonderful!

I love the photographs you use in your pieces. They seem to capture a certain moment and spirit...These men are frozen in time in the most wonderful way. And.. I love how you photograph your work on that green grass1
