Forty Years

As you are aware, I took a brief trip last weekend to Oklahoma.  Waiting at the other end were my two brothers and my mother. Only one brother knew I was coming. I was a surprise for Mom and my younger brother.  Forty years ago, when I was graduating from high school, we had a formal family portrait taken.

In all the intervening years, for some reason, we’ve never all been in the same place at the same time. Until last weekend.

Here’s one I got of my mom while I was setting up the shot and testing the shutter release. I’m just out of camera to the right, so yeah, it’s me she’s looking at.

Making a wish over her birthday cake.
