Challenge Fifteen: Family Picture

So, it’s rather sobering to realize that the only “recent” family picture I have was from the wedding. Which I don’t actually have access to at the moment – and I really don’t want to show off my parent’s faces in it.

I wasn’t really impressed with either one of them that day.

Fact is, my parents don’t really get along. Therefore, I don’t have any recent photos of them with me. Par for the course in the last ten years – before the wedding, the last time I’d even seen them in the same place was for my High School graduation – and the expressions in THOSE pictures are about as great.

And while I have tons of pictures of Meret, my only “real” family I see frequently…well, I don’t have recent pictures of her and me either. I don’t do “selfies” with my cat.

So yeah, rather sobering to realize I don’t have family pictures.

    This needs to be rectified, Christmas pics of you and Meret needs to be taken! 🙂

      It will have to be after Xmas – I don’t see her again until I get back to Toronto.

    Ahh, family pictures are overrated. Pictures with friends are always better. They’re the family you picked yourself!

      Haha Dan, yes I agree. However, it’s still the theme of the challenge. I considered doing pictures with friends, but try to stay as close as I can to the original intention of it.
