The Horror of Family Photos
Copyright © Erik Pennebaker, All rights reserved

What can you say sometimes? My grandpa, apparently on a fishing trip somewhere (maybe in the gulf of mexico? somewhere on the great lakes?) and some guys, almost surely part of the company that took him out for the big catch.

I guess you can't help but notice the guy on the right, with the half shirt. Probably, if he were to run for president, I could simply produce this photo for the media and it would be over. There would be questions. The mustache - forgivable. Even cool, in some quarters. The belly shirt? Sorry.

The whole photo is made more awkward by the fact that clearly someone else is taking a photo to the right, and this was just a second person no one was paying attention to.

Boarding the Boat - date unknown

It seems like this was taken from boat, as the motley bunch boarded for a day of fishing, presumably with boxes of important rations (beer). It looks like there is a mexican in a sombrero with light plaid golf pants. I have no idea about the lady with the kids.
