For the Love of Dad | Happy Father’s Day

I never know what to get my dad for Father’s Day.

Since I can remember, every time I have asked my dad what he wants for Father’s Day, or any other gift-giving holiday, for that matter, he has given me the same answer.

Paisley socks.

Because he is a smartass.

Dad & Cousin

That’s him on the right, pants rolled up unevenly, like the little punk he is. He as about 4 here.

So for this Father’s Day, I thought I would make a little dad retrospective. Love you dad.

The Keeper of the Memories Project

It was a slippery slope, the series of mundane events that led me to where I sit today, on top of boxes upon boxes of jumbled photographs and barely contained, broken-binding albums.

Add to that my reignited passion for photography and my tendency towards obsessive categorization and cross-categorization, and you may begin to see the depth and breadth of the project that has taken over my life.

Keeper of the Memories

This is only a portion of the hard-copy photographs. There are more. And then digital cameras were invented...le sigh.

I think of the Keeper of the Memories Project as my Kraken, slumbering beneath the depths of clothes on my closet floor until I open a box and wake it from its slumber, only for it to throw its multitude of of photographic suckers upon me and try to drag me under.
